DER PASSFÄLSCHER (The Forger)

Maggie Peren

Germany, Luxembourg, 2022 / 117 min / German OV with English & French subtitles / Drama

21-year-old Cioma Schönhaus won't let anyone take away his zest for life, especially not the Nazis. He wants to discover the world, but has the misfortune of living as a Jewish person in Berlin in the 1940s. Since the best hiding spots are in plain sight, Cioma decides to step into the light to escape deportation. Using the identity of a marine officer he created for himself, he throws himself into the city's nightlife and even finds a fragile hope for love during the darkest moments of the war. He spends his days forging IDs with just a brush, some ink and a steady hand - and saves the lives of many others. But his talent puts him in increasing danger, and at a certain point, Cioma's only hope for survival is one last forged ID - with his own name on it.
