Closely Watched Trains

N.p. Sigma III Corporation, 1968. Vintage black-and-white still photograph from the 1968 US release of the 1966 Czechoslovakian film.

Based on Bohumil Hrabal's 1965 novel, about a young man working at a German-occupied train station in Czechoslovakia during WWII. A key entry in Czechoslovak New Wave film, poignantly asserting that the Czech people were part of an oppressive system during the war, hitting the mark with sly wit and a peculiar innocence.

Set and shot on location in the Central Bohemian Region of the Czech Republic.

8 x 10 inches. A few light creases, else Near Fine.
