My Best Enemy, featured at the Berlin Film Festival, is the story of Victor, the son of wealthy Jewish gallery owners in Vienna, and Rudi, the son of Victor's family's housekeeper. Friends since childhood, the young men's relationship changes when the Nazis invade Austria and Rudi enlists, betraying the family that once thought of him as one of their own.
