My Best Enemy

Mein bester Feind

“From acclaimed Austrian director Wolfgang Murnburger comes this charming wartime suspense thriller. Vienna, 1939: Jewish art dealer Victor (Run Lola Run’s Moritz Bleibtreu) and newly minted SS officer Rudi (George Friedrich) are childhood friends who find themselves on opposite sides of the coming storm. With an international incident over a hidden original Michelangelo print at stake, Rudi, who has appropriated Victor’s family estate and fiancée, must also secure Victor’s cooperation to ensure his own survival. Much like Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds, this Official Selection of the 2011 Berlin Film Festival is action-packed, full of twists, turns, and reversals of fortune—a much welcomed first course that will have audiences on the edge of their seats wanting more.”—Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival
