... A Pátý Jezdec Je Strach
When the Nazis occupied Czechoslovakia, the first thing to happen was the disaffection of all the Jews in professional positions. No longer able to practice medicine, a Jewish physician begins working in a warehouse, biding his time until the war is over. A fellow tenant appeals to the physician to help a political fugitive who has been shot. Forced into a moral conflict, the physician takes the unselfish road and treats the injured man. Unfortunately, not everyone appreciates the sacrifice he has made and the movie depicts the Catch-22 of doing what you have to do and still suffering for it. ~ Tana Hobart, Rovi

Daleká cesta
The terrible effect of the Nazis upon a single Jewish family provides the basis for this drama. The family cannot handle the strain and gradually breaks up. Interspliced within the film are newsreel clips of angry crowds, and scenes of horror. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
