Many of our guests look forward to film nights as an opportunity not only to watch a film that they may not have seen before but to catch up with friends and neighbours in a pleasant friendly environment. They sit at candlelit tables on comfortable chairs and enjoy their own drinks and snacks or we have ice cream, chocolate and soft drinks to buy as well.
Closely Watched Trains is my favorite movie ever. It is 90 minutes of cinematic perfection: funny, sad, exquisitely shot, beautiful to look at (watch it twice, so that the second time around you can focus on Menzel's genius in composing his shots), and insightful--profound, even. Its structure will make any film student drool with envy. The acting is flawless, particularly the performance by Josef Somr as train-dispatcher Hubicka. Please resist any impulse to see it as a "political" film--it is nothing of the sort. It's just a beautiful work of art. Note: Closely Watched Trains won the Oscar for Best Foreign Film in 1967.
