Bye Bye Germany

Bye Bye Germany

German star Moritz Bleibtreu is a defiant Holocaust survivor looking to strike it rich in postwar Frankfurt in BYE BYE GERMANY, a brisk, polished drama tempered with bittersweet humor. Though haunted by memories of his family, hustler David Bermann (Bleibtreu) is determined to eke out a living in his battle-scarred homeland. With a jaunty klezmer-style score and Yiddish-inflected dialogue, this fresh historical perspective is an utterly engaging salute to European Jews who chose to tough-out painful memories and reclaim their lives.
