Stefan Zweig, Farewell to Europe

Stefan Zweig, Farewell to Europe is a movie which tells us about exile, about what those live who had to run away. It is the movie which speaks about the collapse of Europe, but without taking place in Europe, of the impossibility to lead a carefree existence by knowing that the despair, the adversity and an inhuman cruelty make law in another continent. Stefan Zweig, Farewell to Europe gets back on six events, six episodes of Stefan Zweig's life, (writer, playwright, journalist and Austrian biographer) between 1936 and 1942.
