      immature but very interesting

      This one is better than the Wingless Sparrow. It's also playful abuse, this one is easier and less competitive.
      The second half feels better than the first half. The beginning of the first half is wonderful, it's hard to imagine that it was a work from the 1960s. But the part after the beginning of the first half is a bit verbose. Many things are not explained clearly. For example, the matter of premature ejaculation is not understood, if not mentioned several times later. It's still an...

      Because I have read Hellabar’s "Too Loudly Lonely", I suddenly wanted to see what the film was adapted from his novel of the same name, "The Train Under Close Surveillance". It happened that my friend’s collection of movies was so abundant that this wish was made possible. accomplish.

      Gracious obstacle

      The day before yesterday, I had a gathering with two friends, chatting endlessly about the ocean and the sky. Somehow, I came up with a topic: obstacles. A friend said that he used to be very afraid of talking with people. This fear of talking will rise to physical discomfort. If he is in a crowd, he will feel short of breath. Another friend said that she used to be very sensitive to pollen. In the weak growth stage, the skin lesions brought by pollen once cast a heavy haze on her thin youth....

      Czechs aren't just giggling animals, and Milos isn't just an introverted, sexually dysfunctional train dispatcher. ..."You know I'm a man, and I'm going to try to prove that I'm not who I used to be...

      The Czech film that won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film in 1968. Describes several small people, small lives and small humors in the country railway station. Probably because of cultural differences, individual plots are not well...

      8.5, absurd comedy, a bit boring, full of metaphors, humor and satire. If you don't know history, it may not be easy to understand. As far as comedy is concerned, it is not as interesting as Sweet Homeland, but I still like it very much, respectable premature ejaculation...

      Avoiding the important is light, and if you want to promote it, you should suppress it first. Such an understatement of small ease does not seem to be suitable for the background of war. However, it is this kind of ingenious design that makes the theme and the protagonist truly intimate and touching. A better-looking movie than all the big...

    Evaluation action

    The film seems to be a serious revolutionary theme: the heroic deeds of a new young man on the train station in a small Czech town during World War II blowing up the German munitions train, but the screenwriter is undoubtedly smart: this young man was because of obstacles in the early night with his girlfriend. However, he was ashamed to cut his wrist and commit suicide but was rescued. His motive for sacrificing his life and bombing a...

    • Milos Hrma: I cut myself off from the past entirely. Just like that.

    • Max: A woman is nature's finest jewel.
