My German Friend

original title
Der deutsche Freund / El amigo alemán
Jeanine Meerapfel
Argentina, Germany
100 min

The momentous sweep of post-war Argentinian history distilled into a tender love story.

It’s the late 1950s, and in an affluent and quietly respectable part of Buenos Aires, young Sulamit Löwenstein strikes up a friendship with her next-door neighbour Friedrich over the whereabouts of her family dog.

She’s the daughter of German-Jewish immigrants to Argentina, he’s the son of a senior SS officer.

Both characters will struggle to escape their political inheritance over the next three decades and manage their growing passion and love.
