Synopsis

“Told with unusual sensitivity, The Tobacconist… is a vibrant coming-of-age story and an intriguing portrayal of Sigmund Freud.” - The Hollywood Reporter

Vienna under Nazi occupation is the setting for this ravishingly shot wartime drama about a young man and his unlikely friendship with Sigmund Freud (played by the late Bruno Ganz). Franz arrives in the city as a 17-year-old to apprentice at a tobacco shop, where the elderly psychoanalyst is a regular customer, and the two develop an immediate bond. When Franz falls desperately in love with a music hall dancer, he turns to Freud for advice to help him win her affections. As war approaches and the city descends into turmoil, the dramas of this young man’s life are swept up into the larger events that are shaking the foundations of Europe and the world. 

Based on the international bestseller by Robert Seethaler, The Tobacconist is a moving drama about loss of innocence that deftly walks the line between the personal and the political. 

German with English subtitles.
