Storyline

The movie tells a drama of three people. Marek (Vojtech Stepánek) lives out in the mountains with his half-disabled father (Jan Novotný), separated from anyone else. He survives by poaching animals. His father then trades the animals in the nearest village for the things they need to survive in the wilderness. Marek needs to stay in hiding since it is a war and, if found, he would risk being recruited in the army. His father wouldn't survive on his own. But then one day, an unexpected catch awaits Marek in one of his traps... Written by Czech film center

Marta is a bracing, short feature-length film. I'd call it a thriller, but not in the conventional genre sense. The movie starts slowly with a father and son who live alone in a small house near the woods. Their's is an interesting relationship from the beginning, but the tension amplifies and the plot begins when the son discovers Marta. From there the movie is taut, vividly gruesome in physical, sexual, and emotional manners, and thrilling. The plot is not shocking, but is less than obvious, and the acting is great all around (admittedly, there aren't many roles involved). The shooting also has a sparse feel to it which matches the setting and story really well. I read that this wasn't representative of modern Czech film as a whole, but it's a good sign all the same.
