Closely Watched Trains by Jiri Menzel and My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done?, directed by Werner Herzog

- Closely Watched Trains is a Czech New wave film set in Czechoslovakia during the Nazi occupation in World War II. It revolves around the life and coming of age of Milos, a train officer. The major theme of the movie is the way it satirizes Soviet Russia during this historical time period, which is unconventional for a movie set in World War II. Other themes emerge as well, such as sexuality (or the repression of sexuality), gender roles and masculinity. There was also a scene that stuck out to me at the beginning of the movie, where Milos’ mother seems to crown him with his conductors’ hat, maybe signifying the important role that Milos being a train officer plays at the end of the film....   [tags: Thematic, Film Analysis]
