A young man follows his father's footsteps and joins the railway company, where he learns the job and has his first affair. Set in the country, during the German occupation.

Portrays WWII in a way that only 1966 could provide. Quirky, erotic and bubbling at the seams with subtle sexual innuendos throughout, Closely Watched Trains is difficult to classify. Placing a genre on the film would be insulting, it's every part comedy for it is drama. I couldn't help but get the feeling that being male I could identify with aspects of the male characters more so than a female watcher may. But then again, I think either could enjoy it, either a male noticing traits in the male characters in himself or a female realizing what she has had to deal with. Either way it's a great film and completely unlike anything I have ever seen. It has that comedy appeal that you can't always quite place your finger on, but has you laughing out loud. The juxtaposition of the absurd and pubescent will make anyone cringe with delight. I recommend this to anyone at any stage in life. Watch it with your kids, it will do them good. It's funny to think that the young awkwardness lingering through this film is still very much the same for the teenage boy. You would think that sexuality discussion in the media would have peaked long past the 70's heydays...
