Time to Say Goodbye / Simon sagt ‘Auf Wiedersehen’ zu seiner Vorhaut

Poster for Time to Say Goodbye / Simon sagt ‘Auf Wiedersehen’ zu seiner Vorhaut Maximilian Ehrenreich stars as 12-year-old Simon Grünberg, a Jewish kid who has a lot to deal with at a difficult hormonal age. Since the recent divorce of his parents, life in Hamburg has been like a ping pong ball, as he travels back and forth to live in turn with his mom and dad. Complicating matters, the family is religiously divided. Newly-observant father Frank (Florian Stetter) desperately insists that his squeamish son sacrifice his foreskin before his Bar Mitzvah, while liberal-minded mom Hannah (Lavinia Wilson) is fed up with the pious posturing of her ex-husband. Meantime, Simon falls head over heels in love with the new rabbi Rebecca (Catherine De Léan) who is unfortunately twenty years his senior. With the Machiavellian scheming of friends Clemens and Ben (Tristan Göbel and Yuri Völsch), a rivalry to win her heart fuels a family feud.
