Diamonds of the Night (DVD) Jan Nemec


Running in Fear 5*
Two tortured young souls try to escape after leaving a train bound for a death camp in WW2 Czechoslovakia. The pain of their journey is evident in their faces and their feet as they run until they drop, get up and run again.

A waking nightmare bred of desperation, fear and persecution plagues an encounter with a farmer's wife. Just as shocking is the scene where the boys await execution, while their captors eat, drink and sing.

All the more terrifying for being based on the direct experiences of the filmmaker himself. This film will grip you and leave you shaken.

The well-presented booklet is very informative.
