You Only Die Twice

Ata Met Rak Pa'amayim

21st TDF: European Premiere

The movie plays out like a political thriller or a noir-like spy novel. An Israeli documentary filmmaker sets out to discover the man who, during World War II, stole his grandfather’s identity, spending a lifetime having denied his own. A compelling journey straight into the heart of the darkness that devoured 20th century Europe, which unfolds a drama of survival, betrayal and reconciliation, only to finally blossom into an extraordinary love story.
