Movie Info

1938, Prague. Emil, a radio reporter, is married to the beautiful Hana, an actress whose new film has catapulted her into fame. As the Nazis come to power, however, Hana's Jewish heritage precipitates her fall from stardom to the bottom of the social ladder. In order to protect her, Emil compromises himself collaborating with the new Nazi-controlled state radio station. But as Emil starts enjoying the attention and respect that had previously evaded him, his fidelity and loyalty towards his wife begin to falter. The assassination of the Third Reich Deputy Protector and a chance encounter on a bicycle bring their lingering marriage to a crisis, possibly sealing Hana's fate. -- (C) Film Movement

Critic Reviews for Protektor

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (4)

Though it remains a little too enigmatic, Marek Najbrt's Holocaust drama is atmospheric enough to keep us edgy on its heroine's behalf.

August 5, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Dipping in and out of luminous black and white, "Protektor" has a distancing glamour that prevents the story from digging in.

August 4, 2011 | Rating: 2.5/5

Protektor is simply another in a long line of diluted stories about life during wartime, one whose diminished returns only further trivialize a legacy of real-life horror.

Top Critic

Najbrt gets the look and feel of noir fatalism down, but storytelling that alternates between roughshod and lethargic means the film doesn't hold together as much more than pretty fragments.

August 2, 2011 | Full Review…

Ethically thorny and stylistically accomplished.

August 26, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

At last, a movie about the holocaust about ordinary human beings confronted with difficult choices. A superb script, terrific acting, and political relevance make this one of the more important movies of the year.
