A Night Too Young Příliš mladá noc

Olmo Omerzu / Czech Republic, Slovenia / 2012 / 65 min / Czech

An allegorical miniature about demystification of love. The feature debut by Slovenia-born and Czech-trained director was premiered at this year’s Berlin Film Festival.

On New Year’s Day, two 12-year-old boys, Baluška and Řezač, unexpectedly find themselves in the flat of three young adults and have their first encounter with love and sexuality. Oblivious to the fact that someone might miss them and even send police to search for them, they forget about time. Unmindful that they’re still children, they drink, fall in love, vomit and allow themselves to be sucked into the “shameless and licentious” world inhabited by David, Kateřina and Štepan.

»We jointly explored and addressed the loss of love ideals in favour of an utterly ‘mechanical sexuality’, i.e. sexual activity deprived of love. The demystified sexuality and its brutal emergence are also presented as a mask for uncertainty and a defence mechanism against tenderness. It is neither a classical story about childhood nor a usual coming-of-age film, it’s more an allegory, where male and female archetypes surface, also in the world of children. Although the line between childhood and adulthood does exist, sin and innocence cross it rather easily, disregarding all social inhibitions and taboos.« (Olmo Omerzu)
