Full movie description "Krakatit":Based on a novel by Karel Capek, a prominent Czech writer of the early 20th century, who coined the word robot for his play R.U.R., the story revolves around a discovery of Krakatit-a powerful explosive by Prokop, the main character of the movie. After an accidental explosion in the lab, exhausted Prokop slips in and out of dream-like hallucinations. He later realizes that in his altered state of consciousness he had given the formula for making Krakatit to one of his colleagues, and he tries to stop its spread before it is too late. But there are too many dark, powerful forces interested in the ultimate explosive.
Reviews of the KrakatitCritic Spencer Selby has listed "Krakatit" (1948) as a film noir in his book "The Worldwide Film Noir Tradition". It's absent from John Grant's list. This movie is indeed a noir, a sci-fi noir, in both story and cinematography. I watched a 96-minute version.
The main character is one "Prokop", played by Karel Höger. He's a scientist who has invented an explosive named Krakatit. It's an atomic explosive that doesn't use a radioactive substance, but is as devastating as an atomic bomb. The story opens with Prokop in a hospital, apparently with meningitis but also with burned or scarred hands. The movie is told in a flashback that may combine his memories with delirium induced dreams. We cannot be sure that what we see Prokop going through was real or imaginary, but this form of narrative allows a great deal of artistic flexibility. It frees the movie from strictly following a logical order or progression, although there is in fact such a loose progression, and it is not necessary to tie up all the loose ends. Instead the story becomes primarily an examination of the forces intent on controlling this invention and Prokop's strong resistance to these forces. They need him and his knowledge of how to make and control Krakatit, and several different and devious parties try to win him over.
Prokop will be held under a loose guard by one group. He will be attracted to a radiant Princess (Florence Marly) who has her own wily agenda. He will be taken to a meeting of many sorts of power-hungry figures from the establishment side of society. He will be "rescued" by the demonic "D'Hemon (Daimon)", who again has his own intention of using Prokop. The scenario is nightmarish and punctuated by explosions.
There are some images in this film that will stay with you, images of faces, labs, explosions and landscapes. The pressures placed upon Prokop in so many different ways and his feverish resistance are memorable. The film becomes a cry for some level of sanity in the use of the forces that have been discovered.
