The Tobacconist (2018)

1h 53m / Not Rated / Drama NOW AVAILABLE TO STREAM AT HOME!

Seventeen-year-old Franz journeys to Vienna to apprentice at a tobacco shop. There he meets Sigmund Freud (Bruno Ganz, Wings of Desire, Downfall), a regular customer, and over time the two very different men form a singular friendship. When Franz falls desperately in love with the music-hall dancer Anezka, he seeks advice from the renowned psychoanalyst, who admits that the female sex is as big a mystery to him as it is to Franz. As political and social conditions in Austria dramatically worsen with the Nazis’ arrival in Vienna, Franz, Freud, and Anezka are swept into the maelstrom of events. Each has a big decision to make: to stay or to flee?

Based on the International bestseller by Robert Seethaler, The Tobacconist is a tender, heart-breaking story of friendship and love, and a vibrant coming-of-age story set in the midst of the Nazi occupation, highlighted by “an intriguing portrayal of Sigmund Freud, expertly portrayed by Bruno Ganz” (The Hollywood Reporter).
