Time & Tickets

Paris, 1942. Jewish jeweller Joseph Haffmann just about manages to arrange for his family to flee the city and offers his employee François Mercier the chance to take over his store until the conflict subsides. But his own attempts to escape are thwarted, and Haffmann is forced to seek his assistant’s protection. He becomes completely dependent on the goodwill of Mercier and his wife, who not only care for him with reluctance, but also might lose themselves in opportunities their new situation creates for them.

ADIEU MONSIEUR HAFFMANN is based on a play of the same name, written in 2016 by Jean-Philippe Daguerre and inspired by true events.

Fred Cavayé, France, 2021, 115 min. French spoken, Dutch subtitles. With Daniel Auteuil, Gilles Lellouche, Sara Giraudeau.
