Drama | II World War. Nazism. Revenge
Synopsis / Plot
When the Second World War breaks out, three Czech friends find themselves divided: David as a Jew is transported to the Thereseinstadt (Terezín) ghetto, a transfer station on the way to Auschwitz; Horst, as an ethnic German who resents the way Czechs have treated his background, finds it easy to get on in the Nazi party and Josef just wants to live a quiet life, enjoy his marriage to his beautiful wife, Marie, and survive the war.

He maintains his friendship with Horst, not so much out of ideological belief or even for the rare goods that the well-connected Nazi brings, but simply because it would be too difficult to break off from the relationship. Even the fact that Horst has taken an obvious fancy to his wife does not persuade Josef to tell his fascist friend where to go.
2000: Nominated for Oscar: Best Foreign Language Picture
