Farwell Mr. Haffman Poster

Plot summary:

Occupied Paris, 1941: All Jewish community members were instructed to come forward and identify themselves to authorities. Dedicated jeweler Joseph Haffmann (Daniel Auteuil), fearing the worst, arranges for his family to flee the city. He offers his employee François Mercier (Gilles Lellouche) the chance to take over his store until the conflict subsides. But his attempts to escape are thwarted, and Haffmann is forced to seek his assistant’s protection.

It’s a risky proposition for both men and one that Mercier’s wife, Blanche (a wonderful Sara Giraudeau) is skeptical of. As the couple moves into the Haffmann home, the agreement becomes a Faustian bargain that will forever change the fate of all...
