This entrancing film tells the story of an apartment building somewhere along the Polish-German border in the early twentieth century with an exceptionally colorful roster of tenants. The film centers on Rose, a beautiful young Jewish woman, who is being pursued by three aggressive suitors, a Pole, a Silesian, and a German. But her heart belongs to another: a fun-loving journalist who has recently arrived from Warsaw. The film follows Rose and the suitors through this delightfully dark comedy of manners as the encroaching war starts to cast their lives and romances in an ever more quixotic light. New York Premiere
