PARIS 1941. François Mercier is an ordinary man whose only goal is to start a family with Blanche, the woman he loves. François works for Mr. Haffmann, a talented Jewish jeweler. Under the German occupation, the employer and employee are forced to strike a deal which, over the following months, will upend the fate of all concerned.
Farewell, Mr. Haffmann
WHY WE LIKE THIS FILM: AJFF Director David Finkel says “this is the best film I saw at the Berlin Film Festival this year.” This is not a “Holocaust” film, rather it is a superb drama with interesting twists and turns that takes place with the Second World War as its background. Without giving anything away, there aren’t a lot of films set in this time period where you come away cheering for the Jewish characters in the end.
Note: Films are geo-blocked to Texas.
