Directed by Michael Verhoeven

Germany 2014 90 mins.

In 1968, 20-year-old Laura returns to Munich to attend her father’s funeral. Overcome with grief, she and her mother must face the family’s traumatic history. Having survived the Holocaust, Laura’s parents stayed in postwar Germany to start a new life, but not without their horrific experiences looming over their daily lives. Verhoeven, whose previous works include The White Rose and The Nasty Girl, fashions a beautifully made drama that offers both a biting commentary on postwar German society and probing examination of the complex notion of German-Jewish identity.
