Product Description

OFFICIAL SELECTION: TORONTO AND BERLIN FILM FESTIVALS

From acclaimed Israeli director Amos Gitaï (Kadosh, Free Zone), One Day You ll Understand is a meditation on memory, identity, and the reconciliation that follows a French businessman s growing obsession with the secrets of his family s past. Suffused with a quiet glow of sympathy and enlightenment (The New York Times), the film is a diligently understated exploration of the legacy of anti-Semitism (Time Out New York). As the 1987 trial of Nazi war criminal Klaus Barbie unfolds on television, Victor Bastien (Hippolyte Girardot -- Lady Chatterley) reviews old family documents and finds a distressing Aryan declaration authored by his late father, a discovery that throws Victor s conception of his family s history into darkness. His mother, Rivka (legendary actress Jeanne Moreau -- Jules and Jim, Viva Maria!), keeps a stubborn silence about the past, while Tania (Dominique Blanc), his sister, defends their father s declaration. At the same time, Victor s wife (Emmanuelle Devos -- Kings and Queen) and children grow concerned about his increasing distraction. Burning with the need to unearth the truth, Victor takes his family to the tiny village where Rivka s parents were forced to hide during the war. Poignant and ultimately optimistic, One Day You ll Understand offers a compelling portrait of a family s confrontation with the wounds of the past and their hopes for a better future.

Suffused with a quiet glow of sympathy and enlightenment... Jeanne Moreau gives a master class in how to be regal without vanity. --A.O. Scott, THE NEW YORK TIMES
