“Fascinating! … An eye-catching, engrossing romp!”
The father of filmmaker and comics artist Philippe Mora fled Germany in the 1930s and his French mother was miraculously saved from the Nazis. It was their joie de vivre, however, that made a lasting impression on Mora. Tracing his family roots in Europe and Australia, he tells a story full of painful memories but also endless love for art and food, especially mayonnaise. In the Mora saga, mayo is not just a delicious condiment but also an effective Nazi repellent that can save lives.
