Oscar nominated in the Best Foreign Language Film category and the winner of five prestigious Czech Lions (including Best Film and Best Director), Divided We Fall is a delicious black comedy which deftly deals with the compromises forced upon ordinary people during wartime. Based on real life events in Nazi occupied Czechoslovakia, Divided We Fall tells the tale of childless couple Josef and Marie Cizek, who offer refuge to David, a young Jew fleeing from his persecutors.
However, when a Nazi official also takes up residence in their spare room their lives become more complicated than they ever dreamed of... A heart-warming film of genuine insight and compassion that`s full of unexpected twists and turns, the engagingly performed Divided We Fall marks another successful collaboration between director Jan Hrebejk and writer Peter Jarchovsky whose Cosy Dens became a critical and commercial phenemonon.
