About the Making
of the Film
At the beginning of May 1999, the veteran crew from the film
Cosy Dens made its way to the small town of Josefov,
a unique military fortress built in 1780 by Emperor Joseph II.
They chose this quaint site to give director Jan Hrebejk's new
film, Divided We Fall, an authentic feel. After successfully
filming scenes mainly on location, the crew moved to Prague's
famed Barrandov Studios to shoot the most powerful scenes in
this uncommonly dramatic-and often blackly humorous-story.
The mood during shooting was fine, not only because most of
the crew knew each other well, but also due to the huge success
Cosy Dens was enjoying just then, breaking records across
the Czech Republic in ticket sales.
