The Plot and Such: In the Czech countryside during the Nazi occupation, young Milos (Václav Neckár) gets a job at the train station and tries with considerable frustration to lose his virginity.
Closely Watched Trains is a revelation–an absolutely gorgeous black and white film and a glimmering example of the best of the Czech New Wave. The first time I saw it, some of the shots just took my breath away. Václav Neckár is excellent. I want to see his other films, but they are not easy to come by.
