Aro Recommended Divided We Fall


Czech Republic 2001, 122 minutes
Dir. Jan Hrebejk
In Czech with English subtitles
Rating: [M]
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Drama / War

Topics: Period 1940s, Indigenous & Minority Cultures.


Aroview: In WW2 Czechoslovakia, couple Bolek Polívka and Anna Sisková shelter their Jewish neighbour during the Nazi Occupation, with much absurd comedy being cleverly drawn from the situation.

An arthouse hit throughout the world, this Oscar-nominee is nicely balanced in its sympathies regarding heroism vs collaboration, and though there is plenty of dramatic spine, feelgood spirit wins out in the end.
