On January 20, 1942, the top echelons of the German Nazi regime gather in a villa in the Berlin suburb of Wannsee. It is Reinhard Heydrich who convened the infamous conference that dealt with the paragraph “the final solution of the Jewish question”.

Matti Geschonneck’s film adaptation of the event is a detailed reproduction – recorded at the actual location – and is based on the meeting documents that were left behind for posterity. Wannsee 1942 is not a violent film, but it is an important reminder and a chilling insight into how a violent ideology and rhetoric can be translated into action.
