The Bloom of Yesterday (2016)

A renowned German Holocaust researcher, the grandson of a prominent Nazi war criminal, is struggling with his family history, his career and his hatred of people in general. At the height of his personal crisis, he encounters a passionate, manic French-Jewish with a Teutonic complex. Her remarkably frank and unconventional manner turns his professional and family life upside down and helps him finally break down the barriers he has built around his life. An impossible romantic comedy, in effect, a love story programmed to self-destruct.
