Play trailer

Kornél Mundruczó / HU, DE, 2021 / 97 min.

Intense, stylised adaptation of a play about the way the Holocaust’s effects are passed from generation to generation. The bitterly ironic trilogy starts like a surrealist memory of World War II and ends in modern day Berlin, where old wounds are far from healed. Now also released in the Netherlands.

In Part I of this trilogy, a baby miraculously survives Auschwitz. In the next part, this Eva is the mother of Léna, who rebels against the Jewish survival mentality. The drama ends with Jonas, her teen grandson falling in love with Yasmin in modern-day Berlin.

This film will also be released in national cinemas by Eye Filmmuseum.
