And if you consider people denying the Holocaust as just expressing their view, here's a must-watch.

As part of its monthly film screenings for its members, the Hyderabad Film Club is showing Divided We Fall, a Czech film by Jan Hrebejk, this Thursday evening, at the Sarathi Studios Preview Theater.

In World War II Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia, a childless couple, Josef and Marie Cizek, can only watch while the Jewish family of their employers, the Wieners, are first removed from their own home to a spare room in their house by the Nazis, then removed to the far-off facility of Thierenstadt.

Years later, young David Wiener, the sole surviving member of that family, has managed to escape and make it to the Cizeks. Although fully aware of the extreme danger of harboring a Jew in the Third Reich, the Cizeks cannot let themselves leave David to certain death, and agree to hide him. However, this decision leads to terrible danger of discovery by the Nazis and especially by their friend and Nazi collaborator, Horst Prohazka, who is attracted to Marie.

With desperate cleverness and luck, the Cizeks struggle to keep the secret, even when Horst begins to suspect. In doing so, they find themselves making unorthodox choices and learning about the true nature of the people around them.

The film was nominated in the Best Foreign Language category of the Academy Awards in 2000, besides winning awards at the Vancouver International Film Festival for Most Popular Film in 2000 and at the Czech Film And Television Academy Awards for Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director, Best Film and Best Screenplay in 2001.

The screenings are open only for invitees and members of the Hyderabad Film Club. For details regarding membership and screenings, please contact Bh S S Prakash Reddy of the Hyderabad Film Club at 2373-0841/93910-20243.
