Great remembrance of what is almost forgotten
1 November 2010 | by (Czech Republic) – See all my reviews

Firstly it is important to consider that Herz wasn't trying to make a documentary movie, but only a fiction merely based on a true story. The names, places and events were changed in this movie in comparison with what really happened in small Sudeten village Bludov 65 years ago. The movie is full of emotions and up to the present day unsolved questions of what was really happening between Czechs and Germans in 1930's and 40's and who was responsible for all the disasters which happened then. I also enjoyed very good actors, especially Karel Roden, Czech actor who is known from plenty of Hollywood movies including Hellboy or Bourne Supremacy. I can recommend this movie to all who are interested in history.
