"The Fifth Horseman is Fear"
Directed by Zbynek Brynych
A Jewish physician in Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia
works in a warehouse after the Nazi ban all Jews from holding professional
positions. When he helps an injured political fugitive, he is plunged into a
moral and ethical conflict. Within an historical context, director Zynek
Brynych creates a thinly disguised allegory about communist Czechoslovakia
that is rich in atmosphere and dark in tone. "...a nearly perfect film"
(Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times). Czech with English subtitles.
