In his final film, Bruno Ganz (Wings of Desire, The Reader) gives one of his most poignant and stunning performances, as the father of American radio host Martin Goldsmith. Goldsmith’s musician parents fled Nazi Germany in 1941, just a few weeks before Jewish emigration was completely banned. This innovative hybrid narrative brings their beautiful and painful love story to life using ingeniously edited archival material and reenactments of conversations between father and son; the interviews Goldsmith himself conducts with Ganz are a tour de force. Ultimately, Winter Journey is an intimate, riveting exploration of loss, homeland, and occupation.
