Bye Bye Germany

MA15+ Drama

Sorry, there are no upcoming session times for Bye Bye Germany at Dendy Canberra

Synopsis

“...touches chords that are both poignant, funny and bitter.” - ScreenDaily

Frankfurt, 1946. David Bermann (Moritz Bleibtreu) and his Jewish friends have escaped the Nazi regime and are now dreaming of leaving for America. But how will they get the money in these tough post-war times? The smooth-talking businessman focuses on what the Germans now need most: fine bed linens nicely wrapped in amusing stories! The six talented entertainers go from home to home, praising housewives with ashy chutzpah until the flattered ladies have no choice but to buy their irresistible items. Business flourishes and a bright new future can be seen in the horizon. But questions about Bermann‘s past catch up with him. Why does he have two passports? What about his visit to Hitler‘s mountain retreat? Could he have collaborated with the Nazis? The smart and tenacious US officer Sara Simon refuses to close the interrogation, determined to get to the heart of Bermann‘s wartime memories. Sara matches his quick wit with iron severity, but it becomes increasingly difficult for her to escape his winsome charm.

Addressing the complexities of Jews struggling to reassimilate in their own homeland, Bye Bye Germany presents a unique and bittersweet yarn with a telling contemporary relevance.
