Bye Bye Germany
Berlinale (Berlin International Film Festival) • Comedy, Drama
Frankfurt, 1946. David Bermann (Moritz Bleibtreu) is determined to make the most of the ravaged postwar era by recruiting some friends from a displaced persons camp to sell linens at inflated prices to unsuspecting Germans. Most of the group have a simple motivation – to raise enough money to leave Germany and move to the United States. But David has a secret, and the beautiful American Army investigator Sara Simon (Antje Traue) is determined to uncover it.
“Covering dark subject matter with a light touch is a difficult balance to achieve, and Bye Bye Germany gets it right…” (The Upcoming) BYE BYE GERMANY premiered in 2017 at the Berlin International Film Festival.
DIRECTED BY SAM GARBARSKI
