Frankfurt, 1946. David Bermann (Moritz Bleibtreu) and his Jewish friends have escaped the Nazi regime and are now dreaming of leaving for America. But how will they get the money in these tough post-war times? The smooth-talking businessman focuses on what the Germans now need most: fine bed linens nicely wrapped in amusing stories! The six talented entertainers go from home to home, praising housewives with ashy chutzpah until the flattered ladies have no choice but to buy their irresistible items. Business flourishes and a bright new future can be seen in the horizon. But questions about Bermann‘s past catch up with him. The smart and attractive but uncompromising US officer Sara Simon (Antje Traue) refuses to close the interrogation. She wants to get to the heart of Bermann‘s wartime memories. Sara matches his quick wit with iron severity, but it becomes increasingly difficult for her to escape his charm...

"BYE BYE GERMANY takes an old-fashioned approach to period colour, evoking a 1946 Frankfurt still devastated by Allied bombing and war shortages."
Lee Marshall - SCREEN INTERNATIONAL

"BYE BYE GERMANYtells an unusual story with gusto, enlivened by an enjoyable performance from Moritz Bleibtreu."
David Rooney - THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

"Interesting and elegant reflection on the limits of home and humor."
Javier Cortijo - CINEMANIA

"BYE BYE GERMANY is a deeply felt yet unsentimental, often wry look at a group of Jewish friends — all Nazi-era survivors — who, in 1946 Frankfurt, unite to sell high-end linens to raise the funds to emigrate to America. Not your typical Holocaust-inspired drama."
Gary Goldstein - LOS ANGELES TIMES
