Earning an Academy Award(R) nomination for Best Foreign Language Film of 2000, "Divided We Fall" tells the true and bittersweet story of a Czechoslovakian couple whose village has been taken over by Nazis during World War II. Josef (Boleslav Polivka) and Marie Cizek (Anna Siskova) lead a simple and restricted life in their small apartment while outside the turmoil of war and prejudice is a constant threat. When they decide to hide a young Jewish neighbor in their home (Csongor Kassai), the danger of their situation increases, especially since they have a constant visitor Horst (Jaroslav Dusek), a former colleague of Josef's and a German sympathizer with eyes for Marie. When she rejects his advances, he seeks revenge by trying to move a Nazi clerk into their home, forcing the couple to tell a lie that will change their lives forever. With an engrossing, historically-charged story and subtle yet stirring performances, "Divided We Fall" is a film of depth and humanity that you'll never forget.
