A psychological crime drama based on actual events of the not-too-distant past. A group of university students thought it would be entertaining to abduct girls and gang rape them. Out of fear, none of the victims talked. A female student, however, didn't want to remain silent. The kidnappers drew lots to decide which of them would become a murderer. At dawn they dragged the girl (Barbora Seidlová) off to a lake and drowned her. They terrified the witnesses and severed all contact among themselves. It took the police several years to find the necessary clues. In the meantime, some of the perpetrators began raising families, even became model citizens. Their parents used every means possible to fight the evidence, heedless of the victims' suffering, motivated only by the need to save their children, their reputations, their position in society.

Excellent criminal story
16 January 2005 | by eurik-1See all my reviews

Based on real event, Bolero is an excellent story of progressive recovery of a crime. The story surprises all the time, shows new connections, new possibilities, exposes new ideas and facts. It's possible to understand the film on more levels. It describes the position and all the feelings of victim's family, the police work as well as the impact of the crime on it's malefactors. It also touches the topic of moral decay of the descendants of rich, high-posted families. In addition to this, the power of the storyline is accentuated by the quality of the artistic treatment of the whole piece.

Bolero is definitely something worth seeing if you don't need shooting, killing, running, fighting, explosions and exaggerated, unreal situations to enjoy a movie.

Note: However, I don't recommend this movie to children.
