LONG LIVE THE REPUBLIC is a black and white Czech language drama, with English subtitles, from 1965.

Violence

A youth is thrashed by his father, using a leather belt; he is also slapped by his mother. There is sight of a Russian soldier being shot in the chest, and a scene in which sticks and stones are thrown at a suspected Nazi collaborator, causing blood to trickle down the back of the neck. It is later implied that the man commits suicide by jumping into a well.

A photograph of a naked woman is seen, from time to time, inside the lid of a metal cigarette case. One scene includes brief full frontal male nudity as youths throw objects at a naked boy who is tied to a tree. There is also occasional sight of dead animals and some use of mild bad language, including two subtitled uses of the term 'shit'.
