Filmhaus Nürnberg; Nuremberg, Germany (2009)
This powerful Holocaust drama takes place in Kiev, Russia on September 29, 1941. Chronicling the last twenty-four hours in the lives of a Jewish tailor (renowned Soviet actor Innokenty Smoktunovsky) and his family just prior to their deportation and execution at Babi Yar.
Director Gorovets uses the simple human drama of his characters to raise complex and terrifying questions about the fate of the Jews under Nazi and Soviet tyranny.
"Impressive and affecting... the violence is never fully depicted, but Ladies' Tailor is as disturbing as many far more explicit films about the Nazi genocide."
- Mark Jenkins, Washington City Paper
"A brilliant film." - Leonid Anninskij, Soviet Culture
