Příliš mladá noc (A Night Too Young)
dir. Olmo Omerzu
Czech Republic, 2012, 65 minutes
Czech, with English sub-titles
Premiering at the Berlin International Film Festival, A Night Too Young received much critical acclaim. The intense and concise film follows a duo of twelve-year-old boys who unwittingly stumble into a new year’s party with three adults in a small, sleepy Czech town on a snowy December 31st. Their first encounters with alcohol, cigarettes, and the law colour this fateful night with a combination of awkwardness, hilarity, and dream-like intensity as the boys observe the behaviour of the adults. As The Hollywood Reporter notes, “[this] smartly- handled innocence-in-peril feature introduces a promising new writer-director from central Europe.”
