Details

The debut feature from Jan Němec (The Party and the Guests), Diamonds of the Night is a thrilling and startlingly original work of cinema.

Told almost without dialogue, it chronicles the tense and desperate journey of two teenage boys who are trying to stay alive after escaping from a German train bound for a Nazi concentration camp during World War II. 

With its virtuoso cinematography, deft editing and brilliantly utilised soundtrack, the film is a landmark of the Czech New Wave.
