More soap opera than high drama, the film is confused and confusing, and tedious to boot.

As directed by the Czech veteran Juraj Herz in prestige-television style, the bulk of the film is a classically proportioned and tasteful wartime soap opera.

Compensates for its under-occupation familiarity with poignant performances, confident direction and an impressively sober sense of how the era's tragedy kept expanding exponentially.

A World War II melodrama with a hook, Habermann does a credible job of personalizing a period of the war largely unknown outside the Czech Republic.
