CLOSELY OBSERVED TRAINS (X) Czechoslovakia 1966
Directed by Jirí Menzel

Winner of the Foreign Language Oscar in 1968, Menzel’s gentle tale is a perennial
favourite and undoubtedly the most accessible of the films to emerge from the
so-called Prague spring. It concerns a young railway employee during the Occupation
who has his first, bitter-sweet, sexual experience.  Running time 93 minutes

4th December – 7:30pm
Ipswich Film Theatre, King Street, Ipswich IP1 1DH
