THE LAST JOLLY BOY
Hans-Erich Viet, DE, 2018, 105'
THE LAST JOLLY BOY is a road-movie through German-Polish history and present – with Leon Schwarzbaum, who – as a teenager – was a member of the swing group “Jolly Boys”. The director accompanied him for more than three years, also at the time of the last Auschwitz trial against the SS-officer Reinhold Hanning. THE LAST JOLLY BOY is a sensitive filmic portrait of a man, who leaves the audience with hope for the future.
