The Shop on the High Street

One of the jewels of the Czech New Wave is being shown as part of the Leed Film Quarter.


The film dramatises the insidious effects of collaboration during wartime occupation with great sensitivity and lightness of touch.


Tono is a poor inhabitant of a Slovakian village recently occupied by the Nazis. When the authorities offer him proprietorship of a Jewish widow's shop, he goes along with it as she is odl and confused and think he is looking for employment.


They grow to like each other, but Tono is eventually forced to face up to the reality of the situation when Jewish evacuation begins.
