The McCall Film Society presents “Bye Bye Germany”, Wednesday, February 13th at 7 pm at the Alpine Playhouse. “Bye Bye Germany,” is “a refreshingly original, unpredictable tale about Jews trying to scam their way out of postwar Europe, is part caper, part Holocaust drama, part buddy movie, part romance, and part melancholic comedy” says the San Francisco Examiner.
“Bye Bye Germany” takes place in Frankfurt in 1946. David Bermann (Moritz Bleibtreu) and his Jewish friends have escaped the Nazi regime and are now dreaming of leaving for America. But how will they get the money in these tough post-war times? The six talented entertainers go from home to home, praising housewives with ashy chutzpah until the flattered ladies have no choice but to buy their fine bed linen. Business flourishes and a bright new future can be seen in the horizon. But the past is always around the corner for these likable characters and the plot has many twists. The film was the official selection of the Berlin International Film Festival and the Seattle International Film Festival.
Advanced tickets will be available at the McCall Public Library, starting next Thursday, February 7th until 3 pm Wednesday, the day of the show. Remaining tickets will be available at the door. All tickets are free.
