MY GERMAN FRIEND

(Der Deutsche Freudn / El Amigo Alemán)  

BY JEANINE MEERAPFEL
35mm, 100 min, Germany/Argentina | In Spanish/German with English subtitles

New England Premiere

Q+A with director follows screening

In her remarkable new film, Jeanine Meerapfel (Malou, La Amiga) distills the momentous sweep of post-war Argentinean history into an intimate, humane love story that ricochets between Germany and Argentina, love and guilt, the political and the personal. In late 1950s Buenos Aires, young Sulamit Löwenstein (Celeste Cid), the daughter of German-Jewish immigrants, becomes friends with her neighbor Friedrich (Max Riemelt), the son of a senior SS officer. This oppressive legacy overshadows the couple for the next three decades as Celeste becomes a professor in Germany and Friedrich joins radical political movements in Germany and Argentina.

“Brilliant.” –Argentina Independent
