DÉMANTY NOCI

(DIAMONDS OF THE NIGHT)

Directed by : Jan NĚMEC

Year of production : 1964 Country : CZECH REPUBLIC Length : 68 minutes

Synopsis

Diamonds of the Night, the debut feature film from the director Jan Němec, is a drama set on the knife edge between life and death. Images of the escape of two mentally and physically exhausted men from a train carrying them to their death are interlaced with flashbacks, dreams and hallucinations, which actualise the subjective perception of both protagonists. A free adaptation of Darkness Casts No Shadow by Arnošt Lustig, a Holocaust survivor who closely cooperated in the making of the film, it marked the beginning of the career of Jan Němec, one of the most original Czech filmmakers of the 1960s.
