Walking Too Fast

While monitoring the lives of the political enemies of totalitarian Czechoslovakia, a tyrannical secret agent becomes obsessed with the life and mistress of a leading dissident. Bored and no longer caring, he exploits the system to tear the lovers apart and get the woman for himself.

A more chilling Czech answer to The Lives of Others, this engaging thriller with a stand out central performance succeeds in recreating the grim reality and despair of life in a police state while simulating the feeling of being watched.

Radim Špaček, Czech Republic, 2010, 146’
(Ondřej Malý, Kristina Farkašová, Martin Finger, Luboš Veselý)
