Santa Fe begins where Corti's 1982 film God Does Not Believe In Us Anymore leaves off. In 1940, a ship arrives in New York harbor filled with exhausted Jewish immigrants desperate to begin a new life. Freddy struggles to find work, learn English, and overcome his piercing alienation. His world of refugee acquaintances includes the depressed daughter of a poet/delicatessen owner, an aging surgeon who cannot find work, and a lovable charlatan photographer. A totally absorbing picture, which examines with complete assurance the hopes, doubts, and memories of immigrants who have no place to call home. Corti's trilogy continues with Welcome In Vienna. Written by National Center for Jewish Film

Excellent rendition of refugee life in war time New York
8 May 2009 | by joelbarrybrandtSee all my reviews

The second movie of a trilogy, Axel Corti continues an excellent portrayal of the the saga of refugee Jews from Central Europe. Axel Corti did a fabulous job of blending in stock footage of New York City of the early 1940's along with original footage from a film made during the mid- 1980's.

The characters are believable and the circumstances thy find themselves appear to be true to life. The acting appears to be flawless as I found to be true in the first of the trilogy, "God Does Not Believe in us Anymore" I have not as yet viewed the third movie as yet, Welcome to Vienna, but anticipate similar quality.
