In a war-torn village, one couple makes the ultimate sacrifice to save another.

Earning an Academy Award® 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 (Csonger 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, f-rcing 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.
