The Rose Garden

Forty years following the Holocaust, Reichenbach finds himself on trial for assaulting an elderly businessman he believes responsible for the killings. The deliberately paced and haunting production raises questions about German culpability for the actions of the Nazis. Stars Liv Ullmann, Maximilian Schell, and Peter Fonda. Advanced students. (HS+).
