  • And Along Come Tourists

    2007. Germany. Written and directed by Robert Thalheim. With Alexander Fehling, Ryszard Ronczewski, Barbara Wysocka. Thalheim's moving second feature (his first, Netto, screened at MoMA last year) takes place in Oswiecim, the Polish city where Auschwitz is located. In this tale about cultural adaptation, the difficulty of forgiveness, and the building of an unlikely relationship, a young German completing his civil service is assigned to care for an unpleasant elderly man—a Holocaust survivor who repairs the suitcases of murdered Jews for the Auschwitz museum and who refuses to quit the memorial site. In German, Polish, English; English subtitles. 85 min.

In the Film exhibition Kino! 2007, Featuring Kino! Berlin
