My Best Enemy-Chandler
MY BEST ENEMY (Austria)
Director: Wolfgang Murnberger
Drama / Dark Comedy - 109 minutes, German w/English Subtitles
Harkins Chandler Crossroads 12 Sun. Feb. 10th, 3 PM
A game of now you see someone one way, now you don't, that could turn deadly a final winner and a loser. A DANCE not a lovely Viennese Waltz, but more a sinister tango, with many intricate twists and turns over falsified identities, falsified art, faked personal and romantic attachments. A COMEDY, only it is the "black" variety. You cannot resist laughing even as you may feel guilty, wondering how can the Holocaust, the Nazis, confiscation and concentration camps, be funny. Wonderful acting and directing make this "edge-of-seat" thriller work. If there is still any "do I really want to see this" doubt, remember with all the escapades and questions raised, do you really not want to see how it all comes out in the end?

"This official selection of the 2011 Berlin Film Festival is action packed, and (a) reversal of fortunes." Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival, 2011
