Watch The German Doctor trailer here.
Eva and Enzo are preparing to open a cozy lakeside hotel in a remote Patagonia town when the family first encounters the charismatic doctor (a chilling performance by Àlex Brendemühl) along a long desert road. With mother Eva pregnant with twins, and her diminutive 12-year-old daughter mercilessly teased about her stunted size, the family represents more than a passing interest for the nefarious doctor. Unaware of the danger, they accept him into their home, until a local archivist and photographer suspects the town of German immigrants is harboring one of the world’s most infamous war criminals. At turns eerily gripping and thought-provoking, this visually striking drama is a meditation on the complicity of those who sheltered the Nazi elite in postwar South America. Based on a book written by the director and nominated for 16 Argentinean Academy Awards.
