The Academy Award Winner for Best Foreign Film "Closely Watched Trains" (1966) is a light look at the life of an unambitious train conductor during the German occupation of Czechoslovakia. Through a series of unexpected events while trying to liberate himself from his virginity, he is eventually led to volunteer as a martyr for the Czech underground. The frequently light and often mocking tone balances the dark exploration of political themes. This product of the Czech New Wave also marked the end of an era, as the oppressive communist reform took over the country and limited artistic freedom.
