A Night Too Young / Mlada noč (2012)

65 min / fiction, Feature Film

Two children find themselves in a young girl’s flat with two other men and here they experience their first encounter with love and sexuality. The children lose track of time. They were expected home long ago. They drink, throw up and are intoxicated by love and “the shameless, unbridled and licentious” world in which David, Kateřina and Štěpan live."This isn’t a classic childhood or coming of age story, but an allegory where male and female archetypes play out in the world of children. There is a border between the children’s and adults’ worlds, but both sin and innocence pass it freely, ignoring society’s bans and taboos". Olmo Omerzu
