Farewell, Mr. Haffmann

France 2021 | 115 minutes | French | Hebrew subtitles

Occupied Paris, 1941. Fearing the worst, dedicated jeweler Joseph Haffmann offers his employee François Mercier the chance to take over his store until the conflict subsides. But his attempts to escape are thwarted, and Haffmann is forced to seek his assistant’s protection. The role reversal gives rise to a power play that tests the moral backbone of its participants. Farewell, Mr. Haffmann is a psychological thriller, in which the effectiveness is born from the compressed cinematic space and the brilliant performances of the main cast.
