This 1967 Czech feature by Karel Kachyna, banned for 20 years after receiving a prize at the Venice film festival, is set in a Moravian village in 1950, two years after the communist takeover. A nun whose prosperous father, a farmer, wipes out all his livestock and commits suicide rather than submit to enforced collectivization, returns to her home town and encounters some conflicts of her own regarding her religious practice; with Jana Becjchova and Mnislav Hofman.
