In this epic romance spanning three decades, a Polish partisan and German Jewish woman forge an unshakeable bond in the dark shadow of the Holocaust. After a daring escape from a Nazi death camp, Tomasz and a pregnant Hannah (impressive leads Mateusz Damiecki and Alice Dwyer) are forcibly separated in the chaos of war, each convinced the other has died. The events of 1944 Poland are crosscut with 1976 Brooklyn, where an older Hannah (Dagmar Manzel)—now a married mother—glimpses a television interview that rocks her to the core. The stunning realization that her lost love may still be alive triggers a spiral of unresolved emotions and moral ambiguities as Hannah must now confront her unresolved past. Based on actual events, Remembrance is a heartfelt journey told with restraint and compassion by award-winning director Anna Justice.
"A Holocaust saga that hits unusual and unexpected notes, and a cross-cultural love story with historical insight and depth. From beginning to end, from top to bottom, 'Remembrance' is an immersive, intelligent and altogether satisfying experience." Michael Fox, JWeekly , October 20, 2011
