The Tobacconist

The Tobacconist

Franz, a naïve 17-year-old, moves from his rural home to Vienna to work in a tobacco shop and soon falls for a beautiful, enigmatic young cabaret dancer. The film’s sole Jewish character is none other than Sigmund Freud (Bruno Ganz). One of the shop’s regular customers, Freud, becomes Franz’s unlikely friend and romantic advisor, helping him understand the mysteries of the human mind, heart—and dreams. But as the Nazis gain power, the personal becomes political and the characters face fateful moral decisions. This film contains mature content.
