Austria at the European Union Film Festival

I am excited to let you know about The Cinematheque’s 22nd Annual European Union Film Festival which runs from November 22 – December 2. This annual finger-on-the-pulse showcase of acclaimed new films includes 25 titles from 25 countries, and Austria’s film The Tobacconist (Der Trafikant) will screen November 22 (Friday) 8:30 pm.

Plot: Iconic arthouse thesp Bruno Ganz (DownfallWings of Desire), who died in February of this year, portrays psychoanalytic sage Sigmund Freud in Austrian director Nikolaus Leytner’s stately, sensitively rendered coming-of-age drama. Based on the eponymous book by Austrian novelist Robert Seethaler, The Tobacconist concerns 17-year-old Franz (Simon Morzé), a rural naïf dispatched to Vienna to apprentice at a smoke shop patronized by Communists, Jews, and a certain cigar-chomping psychoanalyst on the eve of Austria’s annexation into Nazi Germany. Smitten with a fetching music-hall dancer (Emma Drogunova), the romantically inexperienced Franz seeks the advice of Dr. Freud to win her affection. Anti-Semitism and Nazi espousal, meanwhile, swallow the city.
