Closed Season

In one of the more unique Holocaust films ever shot, a young Jewish man being given shelter by a German husband and wife in the Black Forest must comply with an unusual request: the couple has been unable to conceive and the husband asks their “guest” to intercede on his behalf. Complications of the heart and of the war expectedly intrude as the film delivers an engaging tale of how wartime (like politics) can indeed make for strange bedfellows. Gorgeously shot and perfectly paced, this dramatic tale unfolds throughout WWII and into the 1970s when the now-adult child of this complex union learns the strange truth behind his parentage.
