Ostře sledované vlaky Closely watched trains by Jiří Menzel ( Visual )
14 editions published between 1966 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 1,026 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The sexual problems of an apprentice guard at a sleepy rural railway station during World War II are balanced by the exploits of the station guard resolved to do as little work as possible. The authority figure, the station master, is eccentrically ineffectual. Although the Resistance ultimately beckons, this tragic-comic tale with its distinctively wry humour, adapted by the author from his stream-of-consciousness novel, was the culmination of an anti-heroic trend in the 'New Czech cinema' of the sixties. Menzel's film has a clear political sub-text - the placing of the private concerns of the hero ahead of ideology or politics (a colleague has spoken of Menzel's identification with his hero) was itself a political gesture winning the film an Oscar and prohibition after the Soviet invasion in 1968

The fifth rider is fear A pátý Jez̧dec je Strach ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2006 in Czech and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An aging Jewish doctor is forbidden to practice medicine in Prague during the Nazi occupation. He is employed in a warehouse as a clerk, cataloguing confiscated Jewish property. When a partisan is wounded, the doctor reluctantly agrees to treat him. The doctor hides him in his run-down apartment buiding as he sneaks through the black-market underworld of Prague in search of morphine to ease the man's pain, ever fearful of informant neighbors and vigilant authorities. Within a historical context, director Zbyněk Brynych creates a thinly-disguised allegory about contemporary communist Czechoslovakia that is rich in atmosphere and dark in tone. The expressionist cinematography and stellar performances make this lost masterwork an unforgettable viewing experience

An unsure young man, he is now an agent of the established order, yet he looks on complacently when a stout woman steals some candy. His father, a part time bandmaster, is a petty dictator--Petr resists playing audience to his habitual old-school monologues. His father lacks any direction for the future and Petr is confused and adrift. The disappointments and bewilderments of youth, traditional generational conflict, and a sense of cultural paralysis animate this slender story of human moments that bind, rather than divide, young and old
