Description
 
A Jewish physician in Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia works in a warehouse after the Nazi ban all Jews from holding professional positions. When he helps an injured political fugitive, he is plunged into a moral and ethical conflict. Within an historical context, director Zynek Brynych creates a thinly disguised allegory about communist Czechoslovakia that is rich in atmosphere and dark in tone. "...a nearly perfect film" (Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times). In Czech with English subtitles.
