Měšťanská beseda presents a movie - In the Shadow

A crime story with a political subtext in film-noir style. Set in 1953, it opens with a seemingly banal robbery in a goldsmith’s shop in Prague. It is investigated by captain Hakl, who gradually reveals the suspicious background to the crime. Another key figure is Zenke, an East-German investigator assigned to Prague to “assist” the investigation, who stays in the flat of Hakl’s neighbour. The case gets complicated after a bank robbery with several victims. Further investigation reveals the case’s connection with an anti-Jewish conspiracy contrived by the State Police. The honest policeman is mercilessly pulled into the mechanism of the inhumane system.
