Nominated for Best Foreign Language Film (Germany) at the 2015 Academy Awards. Frankfurt, 1958. A young prosecutor  in the attorney general’s office seeking to advance his career is tipped off about a conspiracy within certain institutions and government branches to cover up Nazi war crimes. The more he digs, the more he uncovers, ultimately leading him to question the integrity of his own family history. Giulio Ricciarelli’s film is a powerful reminder of the oft-overlooked period during which Germany tried desperately to conceal and deny its complicity in the atrocities of the Holocaust.
