The Silent Barricade or Nemá barikáda
15 August 2008 | by joe312-1See all my reviews

The film is set in the period towards the end of World War 2, depicting an urban battle between the retreating German army and the civil population of the City. The focus being on the civil population of Prague.

A film with a strong sense of the authentic, which is often lacked by more up to date films. The film is a moving account of the courage and the suffering of a civil population that has taken to armed insurrection, against all odds. An overlooked film that will stand the test of time; rewarding and well worth seeing.

There are numerous battle scenes which realistically depict the fear and heroism of war. At some points the film does at times simplify the complexities of the human condition in war, reducing characters to either heroes or cowards. The end of the film presenting the arrival of the Red Army is simplistic in idealistic terms.
