German-occupied Prague in the late 1930s. Emil, a radio host, is obsessively in love with his wife, Hana, a Jewish screen actress. To protect her from the fate of the Jews around them, he agrees to become the official radio voice of the Nazi Party. But Emil’s success as a collaborator threatens to destroy the very thing he’s trying to protect. Provocative, stylish and sexy, Protektor is a visually stunning psychological thriller that evokes ’30s and ’40s film noir. “We have seen our share of dramas about Germans, Jews and collaborators over the last six and a half decades,” declared the Jerusalem Jewish Film Festival, “but director Marek Najbrt’s film maintains sophistication and originality.”
