A German Holocaust researcher (Lars Eidinger), grandson of a Nazi war criminal, is struggling with his family history and his career. At the height of his personal crisis, he encounters a passionate, frenetic French Jewish woman (Adèle Haenel) whose grandmother was killed by the Nazis. After a rocky meet-cute, the kookily mismatched pair bond, speak candidly about their family legacies, and stumble toward romance in this risk-taking drama. Winner, Grand Prize Tokyo Int’l Film Festival. Eight nominations for the German Film Awards, including Best Feature.
“Audacious… offbeat romantic comedy that explores the legacy of the Holocaust two generations removed. An entertainingly skewed, iconoclastic dramedy.” –Variety
