Divided We Fall (2000)

IMDb plot summary: In Nazi occupied Czechoslovakia, a childless couple agree to hide a Jewish friend at great personal risk of discovery and execution.
Directed by Jan Hrebejk. Starring Bolek Polívka, Anna Sisková, Csongor Kassai, and Jaroslav Dusek.

This movie is a different perspective that I haven't seen or heard much on life during World War II. It's a very human drama, with a few unexpected comedic moments. I was especially impressed by the characters, which have lots of unexpected layers and are truly fascinating to watch. It's just as much about them and who they are as it is what they're going through. Very well done. 4 stars.

Flickchart: #580 out of 1905, below Synecdoche, New York and above Intolerable Cruelty.
