Dolmetscher

Feature Film, AT/CZ/SK 2018, 113 min, OmdU

The son of a former SS officer (Peter Simonischek) and the son of a murdered Jew (Jiří Menzel) meet on a road trip through Slovakia, to fathom the horrific experiences of the past. The journey of the disparate companions not only brings the two together, but also each one closer to himself. Dolmetscher is a brilliantly acted road movie oscillating between comedy and tragedy about two men trying to free themselves from the unresolved conflicts in their biographies.
