Dr Cohen works in a mental institution where all patients believe they're historical members of the German Nazi Party, including Hitler. They are allowed to live out their delusions, so "Hitler" tries to consolidate his power.
In 2010 I visited Auschwitz and Birkenau concentration camps for the first time and filmed the visit. I knew many of my relatives had been killed there. Incredibly, that year I also found over 250 documents from Poland and Leipzig, documenting the fate of seven Morawski family members. In 2012, I revisited the camps again with my friend Harald Grosskopf, with whom I had made the documentary German Sons. The two visits triggered an ongoing personal investigation into the matrix of Holocaust Restitution, with the Morawskis, my murdered family, as a portal into the shocking world of Nazi barbarism and looting. With billions of dollars unaccounted for, for millions of victims and heirs, the issue remains an open wound, the legacy of unprecedented crimes against humanity. This film documents this odyssey into the heart of evil, past and present. Written by
Since I made this film I cannot conventionally review it, but since the feather weight unknown writer below puts out an uninformed and inaccurate review full of spoilers and cultural illiteracy, I am compelled to ask the reader to judge the film for yourself. I can say the score by Eric Clapton is extraordinary, and is one for the ages. It is powerful, deep and with hope for humanity in the music, despite the dark cloud of the Holocaust. This film displays my background in this subject matter with films like Swastika, Snide and Prejudice, German Sons and Double Headed Eagle. I am assuming a certain level of knowledge of the subject matter with the interested viewer. Please refer to the External Reviews.
