Czech Title: “Nemá barikáda”
It's May 1945, Russians are approaching Berlin & German troops in Prague are slowly beginning their retreat of the city while committing atrocities along the way. The situation escalates when a tram gets shot at by passing German cars & innocent citizens get killed. The natives immediately decide to block off one of the main bridges, preventing the German's smooth escape. The entire city is suddenly organizing the defense. Tempers have been seething for a long time & finally, all the bottled up anger can be released. The Praguers have a chance to pay back the occupants for nearly 6 years of terror and crimes. As is typical for Czechoslovak movies filmed after 1948, also this flick is heavily tainted by Communist propaganda, which is significantly skewing the reality & making it historically inaccurate.
