The Fifth Horseman Is Fear

1964 Rated NR 1hr 40m

After being barred from practicing medicine in Prague, a Jewish doctor (Miroslav Machacek) takes a job in a Nazi-operated warehouse. But when a political fugitive is critically injured, he risks everything to ease the man's pain. Zbynek Brynych directs this nuanced political allegory that's much more than a historical drama; it's also a finely wrought study of the pitfalls of contemporary communist Czechoslovakia.
