Jan Hrebejk's Divided we fall, the Czech nominee for Best Foreign Language Film at the 2001 Academy Awards, tells the moving tale of a Czech couple attempting desperately to preserve their humanity while the Nazis take over their country and wage war on the rest of Europe. Bolek Polivka stars as Josef, a humble man helping the Jews pack up and leave before the Nazi invasion. He and his wife, Marie (the marvelous Anna Siskova), are in danger of drifting apart because they are unable to have children. Once the war begins and the Jews are shepherded out of their town and to Theresienstadt, Marie and Josef must obey the Gestapo's rules or else end up being arrested. They are visited almost daily by Horst (Jaroslav Ducek), who is quite taken with Marie while trying to lure Josef into collaborating the Nazis; to show his support for the new regime, Horst has even trimmed his mustache and combed his hair so that he closely resembles Hitler. When an escaped Jew (whose father Josef and Horst used to work for) shows up needing help, Josef and Marie are unable to say no, even though they understand that they will be killed if they are caught harbouring a fugitive. Hrebejk's film, featuring powerful music and stunning camerawork--including emotional scenes shot in virtual slow motion with frames cut out and a grainy texture--is an important document of a horrific time in which people were forced to make basic human decisions about themselves and their neighbors that could lead to the death and devastation of entire communities

Prag im Dezember 1967: Weihnachten steht vor der Tür. Es ist die hoffnungsvolle Zeit eines kommunistischen Tauwetters, das Anfang 1968 durch Alexander Dubzek zum demokratischen "Prager Frühling" führte. Zwei Familien wohnen unter ihrem Dach - die Sebeks und die Krauses. Vater Sebek, ein einfacher, gutmütiger Mann, von Beruf Offizier, ist ein Befürworter des herrschenden politischen Regimes und Verfechter häuslicher Ordnung, seine Frau nimmt ihn auf liebevolle Art nicht ganz ernst. Sohn Michal bringt ihn mit seinem "Gammler"-Haarschnitt auf die Palme und zu - wirkungslosen - Schimpfkanonaden. Dass der Junge hoffnungslos in Jindriska verliebt ist, die nur Augen für den älteren Elien hat, entgeht dem Vater völlig und so stellen ihn die jeweils zum Scheitern verurteilten "Selbstmordversuche" des Liebeskranken vor ein Rätsel. Vater Kraus, ein ehemaliger Widerstandskämpfer mit bitteren Kriegs- und Gefängniserfahrungen, ist ein entschiedener Gegner des Regimes. Er hasst die Bolschewiken, die ihn einsperrten und folterten, inbrünstig. Von den schrecklichsten Erinnerungen gepeinigt, tyrannisiert er seine leidende, sanfte Frau, obwohl er sie von Herzen liebt, seine cholerischen Wutausbrüche sind berühmt-berüchtigt. Die halbwüchsige aufsässige Tochter Jindriska ist eine einzige Enttäuschung für ihn, der immer einen Sohn haben wollte. Dass sie darüber hinaus völlig unmusikalisch und am Klavier eine Stümperin ist, verstärkt sein grundsätzliches Unleidlichlich-Sein. [...]
