Gruber’s Journey

An Italian pro-Fascist journalist, Curzio Malaparte (Florin Piersic Jr.), suffering from debilitating allergies searches for a Jewish doctor named Gruber amid the outrageous, and increasingly sinister, bureaucracy of Nazi-occupied Romania. What begins as an absurdist wild-goose-chase leads directly to the heart of the final solution, and the disastrous fate of the local Jews. Radu Gabrea’s “perfect yet subdued” film is Romania’s first drama about the Holocaust. Based on Malaparte’s inventive 1944 autobiographical novel Kaputt.
