a well crafted film...has a surreal feel reminiscent of the 40s film noir genre...it would have been great if the plot has more complexity.

Czechoslovakian tragedy during the Nazi occupation. Interesting visuals, interesting color tints, creative camera shots. Winner of 9 Czech Lions (the Czech Oscars).
