    Overview

    Summary
    Diamonds of the night is the tense, brutal story of two Jewish boys who escape from a train transporting them from one concentration camp to another. Ultimately, they are hunted down by a group of old, armed home-guardists. A bite to eat is Němec's diploma film from Prague Film Academy about one man's feverish attempt to steal a loaf of bread from a Nazi-guarded train.
