Our latest release ‘A Hero’s Choice’ is a light-hearted and darkly comedic parable directed by Bogdan Dreyer. A night of misadventure and immorality ensues after a young boy finds a soldier’s dead body near a village in Nazi-occupied Romania. The German authorities demand that the guilty party confess else the town’s leaders will be executed the following morning regardless of the perpetrator’s identity.

A Hero's Choice

As the deadline for the deal approaches, Father Johanis (Harvey  Keitel) and the villagers realise their only hope lies in convincing Ipu (Gerard Depardieu), the town fool, to agree to confess to the crime and save them all with his sacrifice. He is promised a hero’s funeral if he claims responsibility and agrees to die in their place. A farce seen through the eyes of a young village boy, we witness the darker side of human nature as the villagers manipulate one another, even the ones we’d least expect.
