Auf Wiedersehen Amerika

Quinzaine 1994 | Feature film | 1 h 25

“AufWiedersehen Amerika” is a tale of an odd journey. Isaac, his friend Moshé and Genovefa, Moshé’s wife, leave New York for Poland by boat. They end up in Germany, celebrate Christmas in Berlin and finally reach Poland after all. But everything has changed there. Isaac finds himself a wife and Genovefa an apartment. They all end up happy, at least for a while: one couple in Danzig (alias Gdansk) and the other in Brighton Beach. Told with tenderness and simplicity, this is the tragicomic odyssey of these three characters who are used to life’s upsets and yet find the spirit and strength to continue their journey. Life, in “AufWiedersehen Amerika”, is like Moshé’s jacket: dull and worn on one side, but bright red on the other.
