Bye Bye Germany

Highly Anticipated ‘Bye Bye Germany’ Gets Subtitled Trailer Ahead of Festival Debut

When the Berlin International Film Festival, aka Berlinale, kicks off next week, one of Germany’s most anticipated debuts will be ready to shine: Bye Bye Germany (Es war einmal in Deutschland). Ahead of its February 10th world premier screening, a new trailer was just released with the English-speaking countries in mind.

The story picks up where most German period pieces end — after WWII. With the Nazi regime effectively dismantled, a group of Jewish friends want to find a way to America and away from the land that for the last several years had them face to face with death. However, to make their dream happen, the group has to come up with the money for such a journey, and one’s questionable past presents some problems that may put an end to their newfound dream.

Bye Bye Germany is set to open in German theaters on April 6, but dates for an American release have yet to be announced.
