The Man with the Smile

Documentary / In development / 55' en 90'

March 1947. A young Jewish man, having survived an internment camp, makes a train journey through war-ravaged Germany. People are suffering. During the trip the man doesn’t feel sorry for the Germans – until he is confronted by the hunger (which he knows all too well) of a five-year old girl, who’s scurrying around Hamburg’s central station late at night, barefooted.
