Directed by Otakar Vávra
Czechoslovakia, 1947
Sci-Fi, Thriller


Based on a novel by Karel Capek, this classic of the Czech cinema is, in more than one way, a precursor to Dr. Strangelove. Beautifully filmed in black and white, the haunting imagery and the brooding, damp atmosphere leave an indelible impression on its viewers.
