Dir. Karel Kachyna (1970). Opening with a ritual nod to Franz Kafka, this dankly atmospheric dark comedy, made in People’s Czechoslovakia and long banned, is a sort of political version of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, placing a stridently unhappy marriage in the context of Stalin-era paranoia: Panic mounts to an ironic punch line.
