This very sombre film from debut filmmaker Tomás Lunák recalls the dazzling visual style of Christian Volckman's 2006 French action noir, Renaissance, but [with] a plot that appears to move as slowly as molasses...
A morose Czech train dispatcher is haunted by memories of a German woman who was deported after World War II when he was a boy. In shadowy, noirish black and white animation, this is an interesting-looking picture, but unfortunately it's hampered by a gloomy minimalist plot where almost nothing seems to happen, but the story still manages to confuse.
This Czech film has an intriguing premise along with outstanding visuals and animation. It Follows a train dispacher and his affairs with the world and people he meets and deals with during and after WWII; as you can see it follows a noir tradition we could crave. It could of had the potential to be great, but it falls short with its storytelling with very dreary pacing, and incoherrent plotting. Perhaps I wasn't too open while watching this, actually feeling I've lost sense of the plot. I may of misjudged it, but didn't enjoy it as much as I wanted to.
