Movie Info

In prewar Vienna, Victor Kaufmann (Moritz Bleibtreu/Soul Kitchen, The Baader-Meinhof Complex, Run Lola Run) and Rudi Smekal (Georg Friedrich/ Import/Export, Klimt, The Piano Teacher) had been the closest of friends, ever since childhood. But with Austria's annexation into the Third Reich, Rudi throws his lot in with the Nazis, hoping to gain a leg up by denouncing his Jewish friend and confiscating a Michelangelo sketch owned by Victor's family. The Kaufmanns are sent to a camp-until the authorities discover they only managed to take a forgery, with the whereabouts of the genuine artwork known only to Victor. Determined to find the real Michelangelo, the Nazis bring Victor in for interrogation. But a stormy night and a partisan attack upend their plans, and Victor seizes an opportunity to turn the tables on his captors through a daring scheme of switched identities. (c) IFC
