Film introduction by the Goethe Institut
In this epic romance spanning three decades, a Polish partisan and German Jewish woman fall in love in the dark shadows of the Holocaust. After a daring escape from a Nazi death camp, Tomasz and Hannah are forcibly separated in the chaos of war, each convinced the other has died. The events of 1944 Poland are crosscut with 1976 Brooklyn, where an older Hannah, now marriedglimpses a television interview and believes it is Tomasz. The realization that her lost love may still be alive triggers a spiral of emotions and moral ambiguities as Hannah must now confront her unresolved past. Based on actual events, by award-winning director Anna Justice (Max Minsky and Me, LAJFF 2008).
