Occupied Paris, 1941: all members of the Jewish community are instructed to come forward and identify themselves to authorities. Dedicated jeweller Joseph Haffmann (Daniel Auteuil), fearing the worst, arranges for his family to flee the city and offers his employee François Mercier (Gilles Lellouche) the chance to take over his store until the conflict subsides. But his own 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 sceptical of. As the couple move in to the Haffmann home, the agreement turns into a Faustian bargain, one that will forever change the fate of all…


“Rotten Tomatoes” website gave “Farewell, Mr. Haffmann” 100% ratings by both their critics and by the audience. More Detail & Reviews—Rotten Tomatoes>>

“Farewell, Mr. Haffmann is an ironic title, inasmuch as François never succeeds in saying goodbye to a mentor who overshadows him in every way.”
—John McDonald
Australian Financial Review

“This is first-rate drama with considerable cumulative intensity—and a quorum of irony—and it’s unreservedly recommended.”
Mark Demetrius, FILMINK
