About the Movie

Stefan Zweig: Farewell To Europe tells the story of the Austrian writer and his life in exile from 1936 to 1942. Zweig was one of the most famous writers of his time, but as a Jewish intellectual he struggled to find the right stance towards the events in Nazi Germany. Driven to emigrate to South America at the peak of his worldwide fame, Zweig fell into despair at the sight of Europe’s downfall. This visually stunning and emotionally powerful film explores what it means to be a refugee, and exposes the difficult decision to speak out or remain silent in the face of tyranny.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: One need not admire Zweig's writing to recognize the worth of this thoughtful treatment of one of the countless real-life tragedies of 20th-century history. – Glenn Kenny, New York Times, May 10, 2017

Fresh: As it shifts into a more intimate, conversational register, this frustratingly arrhythmic, sporadically rewarding biopic finally attains a grace befitting its quietly raging subject. – Guy Lodge, Variety, May 9, 2017

Fresh: A movie that allows its actors to fully inhabit their characters in a potent but low-key way. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Jun 15, 2017

Fresh: Much of the feature's quietly accumulated emotional power derives from the fact that viewers have to connect some of the dots themselves. – Boyd van Hoeij, Hollywood Reporter, May 8, 2017
