Movie Info

A young man sent to fulfill his civilian service in Auschwitz discovers the inexorable link between the past and the present in director Robert Thalheim's though provoking drama. As part of his duties, Sven (Alexander Fehling) has been assigned the task of looking after elderly Holocaust survivor Krzeminski (Ryszard Ronczewski). Despite being treated with a scornful mix of impatience and arrogance by his headstrong charge, Sven finds his task made somewhat easier to endure thanks to the nascent friendship he strikes with pretty interpreter Ania (Barbara Wysocka). Later, as Sven begins to understand the motivations of Krzeminski's resentment, the link between yesterday's Auschwitz and today's Oswiecim becomes ever more apparent. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Am Ende kommen Touristen

I expected more from this film. I'm guessing the lack of dialogue and the interpretive focus that the filmmaker tries to ensue upon the viewer is the thing about this plot, but at the end it doesn't really provide anything... it's just one of those young European existential flicks that take a foreign language into another. I believe that it really tried to exploit the Auschwitz/Holocaust issue and the indifference of todays German and Polish youth about it, but it the story never did deliver.

Very subtle, subdued narration, the director chooses to quietly follow his characters around instead of giving us moral guidance. The result is a rather compelling film about German guilt and finding oneself.
