Take Two: “The Tobacconist” (R)

The well known novel by Austrian writer Robert Seethaler provides the basis for the pre-WWII drama, “The Tobacconist” (Der Trafikant ). The film version is directed by Nikolaus Leytner and features one of the final performances from the late Swiss actor Bruno Ganz (“The Manchurian Candidate.”) Russ says, “I suspect that the book wasn’t as inscrutable as the movie.” Susan says, “The photography is stunning.”
