Storyline

In the conclusion of Axel Corti's trilogy (following God Does Not Believe In Us Anymore and Santa Fe) Freddy, a Viennese Jew who emigrated to New York after Hitler's invasion, and Adler, a left-wing intellectual originally from Berlin, return to Austria in 1944 as soldiers in the U.S. Army. Freddy falls in love with the daughter of a Nazi, and Adler attempts to go over to the Communist Zone. But with the advent of the Cold War and continuing anti-semitism, the idealism of both characters is shattered as they find themselves surrounded by cynicism, opportunism, and universal self-deception. This acclaimed, brilliant work is one of the great films of all time. Written by National Center for Jewish Film

Refugees from WW2 Austria, and their difficult return. A masterpiece.
5 January 2005 | by (France) – See all my reviews

This is the final film of a three-part series that follows the protagonists as they escape from Austria as Hitler invades, find unreliable shelter in France, flee to New Jersey, where they pass most of the wartime period, then return to Vienna as part of the American occupying forces. Politically, this third film is crucial, since it shows, as if by inadvertence, the re-installation of remnants of the former fascist power, with its anti-Jewish policies, in the post-war Austrian state.

The series as a whole, entitled "Wohin und Zuruck", is known in English by the title of the third film, "Welcome in Vienna". The first film flawlessly displays the roots of French collaboration. The second episode, called "Santa Fe", is set in New Jersey, but is named for the land they dream of inhabiting, in the American west. The score, in sostenato, is the haunting largo of the Schubert quintet .

These are very important films, which richly deserve to be released in DVD format.
