Wow..what a tragedy. I enjoyed this very much, but it is such a sad story.

Koco, so it is Slovak. My mistake and apologies.

I find it fascinating that the sense of morality imbued in Cold War era films from Eastern Bloc countries is so righteous with respect to Nazis, while the citizens of those nations were being subjected to immoral oppression by their governments. I suppose it was a matter of perspective.

I was crying like a baby during the closing credits.

It's without a doubt one of the greatest film experiences I've ever had...

Beautiful, sad and poetic.

This film gives a voice to the Czech people caught between the inexorable cruelty of Nazism and the human rights of their innocent neighbors. It seems like such an easy choice from our end of the keyboard, but consider Tono's plight and the expected penalties faced by people like him if they chose wrong.

This is some of the best Czech cinema I've seen.

I'm convinced it is only in death will we be able to experience true religious freedom. What a great movie this is.
