Film at Filmový přehled


Having spent many years working as an assistant director, at the advanced age of 48 Stanislav Černý was ready to make his directorial debut with the dramatic feature film Klíč (The Key, 1971). It didn’t happen and he was instead entrusted with the film Černý vlk (The Black Wolf, 1972), a story about an arduous mission carried out by socialist border guards and their faithful four-legged sidekicks. Počkám, až zabiješ (I’ll Wait Until You Kill, 1973), also based on an adventure story by Karel Fabián, was to be Černý’s second and last film as director. The story is set during World War II at the Nordfelsen training facility, where dogs designated for guard duty are being trained using concentration camp inmates. International Brigade member Mareš (Adolf Filip) refuses this atrocious assignment, and while on the run, he is driven by fate to accompany a Norwegian boy. But the destiny of the escapees fortunately also depends on the faithful she-dog Rita.
