Austria’s entry to the Academy Awards 2003

Adapted from an acclaimed Austrian novel, this drama expertly mingles the stories of an Austrian Holocaust survivor living in New York, a German journalist with a Nazi father, and a Jewish actor from Vienna. Delving into the complex memories of each of these characters, this sophisticated film offers a fiercely intelligent perspective on how the past remains a vital force in defining the present.
