The Shop on the High Street

Tóno Brtko is appointed ‘Aryan controller’ of an old Jewish widow’s sewing shop in Nazi-occupied Slovakia under anti-Jewish laws. The widow, barely aware of the war around her, considers Tóno to be simply her new assistant while he attempts to protect her from the encroaching Nazi horror. Wonderfully written and performed, and with an extraordinary score, the film becomes a devastating examination of how minor compromises can finally lead to complicity in the horrors of tyranny. 1965 Academy Award Winner for Best Foreign Language Film.
