Olga is a beautiful Russian countess and member of the French Resistance; Jules is a French-Nazi collaborator who is assigned to investigate her case; and Helmut is a handsome, high-ranking, yet naïve German SS officer who once fell madly in love with Olga and meets her again when she is shipped to a concentration camp. While they recount their stories, the film drifts between the bloody end of World War II and the gilded, halcyon days when their destinies first crossed.

Victim, bystander, or monster – Konchalovsky ("Runaway Train," "House of Fools") collapses these identities, offering a new perspective on the Holocaust. Shot in stunning black and white, the film depicts the morally complex choices that one must make during dark times in search of PARADISE—a look at the past and its lessons for the present.

"Konchalovsky more recently directed "The Nutcracker in 3D." Set in 1920s Vienna, that PG-rated film trivialized Auschwitz. PARADISE atones for that mistake."
Bill Stamets - CHICAGO SUN-TIMES

"Andrei Konchalovsky's film is more than an exercise, as pitiless moments accumulate with enraged relentlessness. "
Chuck Bowen - SLANT MAGAZINE

"A look at the degradation of both men and women under the folly of Nazism, a Holocaust film with more than a few traces of creative originality."
Harvey S. Karten - COMPUSERVE
