Dark Blue World

Synopsis: March 15, 1939: Germany invades Czechoslovakia. Czech and Slovak pilots flee to England, joining the RAF. After the war, back home, they are put in labor camps, suspected of anti-Communist ideas. This film cuts between a post-war camp where Franta is a prisoner and England during the war, where Franta is like a big brother to Karel, a very young pilot. On maneuvers, Karel crash lands by the rural home of Susan, an English woman whose husband is MIA. She spends one night with Karel, and he thinks he's found the love of his life. It's complicated by Susan's attraction to Franta. How will the three handle innocence, Eros, friendship, and the heat of battle? When war ends, what then?

You'll crash into the first hill!

I know.

Everything is conspiring against us.

England, France, the weather,

even my back,


We should tell our men the Poles will need pilots,

ground crews too,

because Poland is next in line.

Nothing official.



single men.

They're here.

Slama, please take over I can't move.

Let's call it an order.

Yes Sir.

Good morning gentlemen. Ober-Lieutenant Hesse!

It's my duty to take over this airfield.

Our commanding officer, Wing-Commander Skokan

is physically indisposed.

I'm in charge.

Lieutenant Slama.

This whole army seems "physically indisposed".

What a lovely map!

So, yesterday we were here.

We had a good look at your famous defenses.

Abandoned without a shot?

As a soldier, I can't understand it.

Sir, kindly do your duty

and respect the honor of soldiers

who have been forced to do theirs.

Keep your shirt on. Just a little joke.

Now, I'd like to see the planes.


The keys, please.

All right boys, let's go.

I can imagine how you must feel.

A German officer would put a bullet in his head.

But you are... a little different,

aren't you?

Pilot Officer Voytishek!

I've got a spare seat.

Thank you, but I'll stick with the boys.

You're taking it too personally.

How else! I felt like throwing up in the hangar.

We carried out an order.

Now we can go home, take off our uniforms,

and take it personally.

How long will it take you to pack?


No time at all.

Don't forget to brush out her ears.

Thistles get stuck in there.

She'll be grateful.

And in winter ice forms on these hairs between her pads.

They hurt her, so you have to cut them out.

But I'll be back well before then.

She'll listen to me?

Of course. She knows you're a part of me.

What's this?
