France/Belgium, Feature Film, 2022, 115 min

Winner of the 2022 Aspen Film Festival Audience Award, and many others

As the Nazis move in on Paris, all members of the Jewish community are instructed to come forward and identify themselves to authorities. Dedicated jeweler Joseph Haffmann, fearing the worst, arranges for his family to flee the city and offers his employee François Mercier the chance to take over his store until the conflict subsides. But Haffmann’s attempts to escape are thwarted, and he is forced to return and seek his assistant’s protection. As Mercier and his wife Blanche move into the Haffmann home, the agreement turns into a Faustian bargain, one that will forever change the fate of all. Farewell, Mr. Haffmann is a suspenseful masterpiece, full of twists and turns that will leave you on the edge of your seat, wondering what could happen next. Subtitled.

Directed by Fred Cavayé
