Night Watch 0+

Timur Bekmambetov, RUS 2004, Russian version / Czech subtitles, 115 min

The Others live among us - a chosen caste of proponents of the forces of Light and Darkness who take their magical strength from human energy. Its use is determined by the Agreement, controlled by the Inquisition. In accordance with it, every good must be balanced by evil. The forces of Darkness guard against the right to the unlimited freedom of human actions and hide the truth about the brutal nature of reality; the forces of Light continually question whether or not their own actions cause an escalation of undesirable consequences. In order to keep within the established order, they also issue licences to the Vampires, who suck human blood. The Sentries of Light and Darkness fulfil their mission through a clever combination of interventions, and in constellations which resemble a duel between justice and crime, or scout patrols. The indecisive results of their permanent confrontation is thus reminiscent of the situation in the world, with its sustained conflicts and uncertainties, and confusion of moral values. The attractive treatment of the film motifs will appeal particularly to young audiences. (source: Catalogue 40th Karlovy Vary IFF)
