Czech director Chytilova, one of the driving forces of the Czech new wave in the 1960s, presents a dim-witted, poorly constructed political allegory and disguises it as a cross between a slasher film and science fiction. Ten Czech teenagers from different schools are mysteriously selected

to participate in a ski seminar high in the mountains. On the big day, however, 11 kids show up with invitations. Because a recent avalanche has cut off the lodge from the rest of the world with only a limited supply of food, the kids are warned by their three strange "instructors" that they must

either pull together and sacrifice to make ends meet or single out someone to leave. It isn't long before the students come learn that the instructors all share a dark secret. After the first 15 minutes any viewer with a brain in his skull should become painfully aware of the message director

Chytilova keeps driving home in scene after scene. Regrettably, her attempts at genre conventions are unimaginative, repetitive, and poorly executed (this is one of those films where the villain continually pops up to scare the victims--either from behind doors, in shadows, or, most often, just

out of frame).
