93 minutes · 1966

Comedy, Drama, Romance
Director Jiri Menzel's 1966 film of a Czechoslovakian youth (Vaclav Neckar) and his amorous and military adventures during World War II. It recalls the work of Milos Forman in its elliptically funny yet tender observation of the quirks of humanity. Some uproarious scenes combine with marvelously perceptive observations of both everyday behavior and the process of a boy's maturation. In Czech and German with subtitles.
