Endlich Tacheles Film

A young Jew and his crazy idea against forgetting

Yaar sees himself as the most un-Jewish Jew in the world. He loves Star Wars and computer games. He's fed up with his father and his Holocaust stories. Yaar rebels by developing a computer game in which Jews can defend themselves and Nazis can act humanely. Then his own family history interferes.

TACHELES – The Heart of the Matter shows how the trauma of the survivors can even affect the third generation. The film asks the burning question from the perspective of a 21-old:

What does the Holocaust have to do with me today?

PRESS REVIEWS

A journey to the deep wounds of a family. An important film about how pain is passed over through generations. Bayerischer Rundfunk

Tacheles - The Heart of the Matter is a strong piece about young people - descendants of perpetrators, victims, and those in-between who try to build a relationship to the past ... a work of art that opens up new perspectives on an often told topic and which stimulates reflection. filmverliebt.de

At the same time, the very personal note of the film also has something healing, it finally allows space for the pain, which would have been needed from the beginning. filmrezensionen.de
