Before Hitler's rise, Victor (Moritz Bleibtreu) was the son of prosperous Austrian-Jewish art dealers, and servants' son Rudi (Georg Friedrich) was his best friend. A few short years finds SS officer Rudi out to collar Victor over a Michelangelo forgery that had temporarily bought his freedom. An unexpected plane crash brings another shade of irony to their fates in this compelling tale. Ursula Strauss, Marthe Keller, Udo Samel co-star. 105 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: German; Subtitles: English. In German with English subtitles.
