Démanty noci

Jan Němec Czechoslovakia, 1964

Robert Orlowski's rating of the film Diamonds of the Night

The film's almost uncomfortably personal demeanor, found specifically in it's cinematography (but not limited to), creates a harsh aesthetic, which sets the overwhelmingly discordant tone. In turn, the lines between reality and surreality are blurred, allowing the viewer to question whether or not the characters can ever reach the paradise they once knew...Prague.
