Death to innocence

Very sensitive, very well-told, if familiar, young boy coming-of-age story. His sexual education is a metaphor for political education, in the setting of Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia. The acting is flawless, the black and white imagery breathtaking, and the message is universal: the loss of innocence, whether sexual or political, is a good thing, it becomes the growth of individual freedom that comes with knowledge and wisdom. The message is as meaningful now in the age of faith-based fascism as it was in the time of the story, and when film was made in 1966.
