Triple bill of Czechoslovakian New Wave films. In 'Diamonds of the Night' (1964), two Jewish boys escape from a train transporting them from one Nazi death camp to another. As the boys run through the rugged and unfamiliar terrain, hounded by a band of armed German villagers, their flight is interpolated by their dreams, hallucinations, fantasies and memories. In 'Intimate Lighting' (1969), successful musician Peter (Zdenek Bezusek) and his girlfriend visit an old friend who is in charge of a small music school. The reunion then causes the characters to reflect on their lives, where they've ended up and how the decisions they've made have brought them there. In 'The Cremator' (1969), Karl Kopfrkingl (Rudolf Hrusinsky) is the owner of a crematorium in the early stages of the Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakia who finds in the situation an opportunity to fulfil his business ambitions, justify his anti-Semitism and exert his obsession for control. His discovery that his wife has 'impure' blood sends him on a psychopathic spiral, leading to a tragic climax.
