My Best Enemy
November 12, 2011
Victor Kaufmann (Moritz Bleibtreu, Run Lola Run, Munich), the son of wealthy Jewish gallery owners in Vienna, and Rudi Smekal (Georg Friedrich), the son of the Kaufmanns' housekeeper, have been close friends since childhood. But when the Nazis annex Austria, Rudi signs up and gives up the Kaufmanns. The clever, entertaining plot of this thriller keeps viewers guessing between a forged and an authentic Michelangelo drawing while lovely, competent Lena is forced to pick between the two men. In German with subtitles, 106 minutes.
