...a sekat dobrotu...

...a sekat dobrotu... (…And Toe the Line…)
by Peter Solan (CSSR 1968)

A young woman (played by Milena Dvorska) in a white smock in a barren cell. In her inner monologue she asks herself the same questions which plague the beholder: Where is she, how did she get there, and why? The openly political connotations of Solan´s film testify to the courage which the „New Wave“ filmmakers had taken in the course of the Prague Spring. When …And Toe the Line… won a main Jury Award in Oberhausen in 1969, the political climate had already changed, and the uneasy sense of foreboding which pervades the film was beginning to appear justified. 

...And Toe the Line...  is part of re-selected Dossier: #1 Fortress - Slovak Films in Oberhausen before 1991
