Grounded by stellar performances from Udo Kier and David Hayman, this new film by Russian-Israeli filmmaker Leon Prudovsky (Five Hours From Paris and Welcome And…Our Condolences) tackles the trauma of the past with a healthy helping of dark humour. Set in Colombia in 1960, the film follows Marek Polsky, a cantankerous Holocaust survivor. When a blue-eyed, left-handed, art-loving German man moves in next door, Polsky has no doubt that his new neighbour is none other than Nazi Germany’s former Führer, and he is determined to prove it by all means necessary.
