Thou Shalt Not Hate

Tickets on sale!

In this gripping and effective drama, a split-second decision at a traffic accident causes lifelong repercussions for a Jewish surgeon and the daughter of a neo-Nazi. The doctor, Simone, son of a Holocaust survivor, happens upon the aftermath of a hit-and-run accident and finds a gravely injured middle-aged man. Without hesitation, Simone jumps in to help, but when he discovers a swastika tattooed on the man’s chest, he pauses and then abandons the victim to his fate. Later, wracked with guilt, Simone confronts the ethics of his choice and bonds with the man’s daughter, ultimately embroiling himself in greater conflict. Posing profound questions about redemption and the paradoxes of the human soul in the face of hate, this provocative parable won the Best Italian Film and Best Actor awards at the 2020 Venice International Film Festival.
