Ostre sledované vlaky (Closely watched Trains) (1966) Drama

Closely Watched Trains (1966) - This Czechoslovakian war movie was really quite sad. Milos Hrma is a shy virgin who works at a train station during the end of WWII. The movie explores the problem he has with women, the doctor said premature ejaculation, which leads him to a suicide attempt. After he finally explores this problem with an older woman things look like they will improve. The other story line comes into play as he is on the outskirts of a Czechoslovakian resistance as the Nazi's retreat. Milo has to unexpectedly step in on a sabotage of a munitions train. Unfortunately he is shot in his successful mission and dies. The movie then ends.
This was a very sad movie and although a drama was also a comedy, a really strange mix.
Rating (6.6)
