Levi is a Jewish man living alone in a small village in Germany in the mid-1930's. He does a good business buying and selling, he courts the farmer's daughter, and he chats with his pet rabbit during his long road trips.

The plight of a Jewish farmer in Bavaria circa 1935
A visually stunning German film with superb acting (particularly by Martina Gedeck), VIEHJUD LEVI is nevertheless "the same old, same old" in its theme. Although it is unique in showing the plight of a Jewish farmer in Bavaria (unlike mostly city settings for the genre), the characters, plot and ending are all too predictable.
