What's the story of Farewell Mister Haffmann?

The year is 1942. Paris is under Nazi occupation. Jews are being rounded up. Joseph Haffmann, a Jewish owner of a jewellery shop and his long- standing employee Pierre Vigneau change roles as part of a strange deal which could only take place against the background of an absurd and tragic reality. Joseph Haffmann will transfer the ownership of the jewellery store to Pierre, on the condition that Pierre hides him from the Nazis. In return, Pierre insists that Joseph enter into a very unusual arrangement with Isabelle, Pierre’s wife…

Add to that a Matisse painting, an ‘art loving’ Nazi officer and his outrageous wife, and marital difficulties amplified by the bizarre domestic situation, it is no wonder that Pierre is driven to the brink.
