Plot

Adelheid (film) movie scenes

A decommissioned Czechoslovak officer Viktor Chotovický (Petr Čepek) returns to his homeland from the Western front after spending much of the war in Aberdeen, Scotland employed at a RAF desk job. He is being appointed the trustee of an empty manor formerly occupied by a German family of a notorious Nazi war-criminal imprisoned by the Czechoslovak authorities. The soldier Viktor Chotovický meets his beautiful daughter Adelheid Heidenmann (Emma Černá), sister of an SS officer who allegedly disappeared in the Eastern Front. Adelheid is forced to work as a cleaning lady at her own mansion. Viktor makes her his captive maid, and soon falls in love with her. His heart is torn between feelings of desire and his national identity and sympathies. Adelheid also slowly gains certain sympathy towards Viktor, but at the same time silently waits for her brother Hansgeorg to return, which he does and Viktor scarcely escapes the death. Despite her action against him, Viktor refuses to testify against Adelheid because he doesn't have anybody else.
