Storyline

80-year-old Ali Ungar comes across a book by a former SS officer describing his wartime activities in Slovakia. He realises his parents were executed by him. He sets out to take revenge but finds instead his 70-year-old son, Georg, a retired teacher. Georg, who had avoided his father all his life, decides to find out more about him and offers Ali to be his interpreter. The two old men, in everything opposite, embark on a bittersweet journey to meet surviving witnesses of the wartime tragedy. They discover a country eager to forget its past. They realise their memories are fragments mixed with their imagination and interpretation. They connect in silence and manage to discover their own identity.

A respectful look at the Holocaust through the eyes of children of victims and perpetrators
12 October 2018 | by pedrokolariSee all my reviews

A sort of road movie through Slovakia with a Jewish survivor and the son of an SS officer involved in the death of the survivor's parents. Not fun, not fast but not boring and totally worthwhile, illustrating in a broader sense how the world continues to painfully cope with this event, a task that should take a few more generations. Solid, believable acting.
