Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: IMDb - - - - - - - «When hordes of vicious rats invade their town and begin stealing their jewelry, polluting their food, wrecking their homes, and attacking their persons, the cruel, avaricious, and gluttonous citizens of Hamelin agree to pay a wandering piper to rid them of the vermin. After he has mesmerized the rats and caused them to leap into and drown in the river running below the town's walls, the piper requests his money but is refused payment. Angered by the way he has been treated, and by the murder of a young woman with whom he has fallen in love, the piper then decides to avenge himself upon the townsfolk. Jirí Barta's Krysar is a stunningly brilliant masterpiece. The director has crafted a movie which is not only visually enthralling but which is also able to arouse in the viewer a powerful emotional reaction. His movie is, consequently, one of cinema's most memorable achievements...» (Keith Allen).
