Review: Bye Bye Germany Directed by Sam Garbanski

Funny and sad, David Berman played by Moritz Bleibtreu and his friends, all Holocaust survivors, have only one purpose: to go to America as soon as possible. For this they need money. With wit and knowledge of the luxury linen business he and his now-murdered brother took over from his father until the Nazis destroyed everything, David enlists others in the displaced persons camp in 1946 to set up a business selling luxury linens door-to-door in elaborate schemes. They have a fine time for the most part but David is also being interrogated by the US Army about a perceived collaboration with the Nazis.
