Taking place over several hours on a single hot August afternoon, just a few months past V-E Day, “1945″ presents a world that is trying to get back to normal. The arrival of two Orthodox Jews upsets a village’s preparations for a wedding day. Transporting two mysterious wooden boxes from the train station to the town, their arrival distresses everyone, making ‘normal’ seemingly even harder to achieve.
“1945 is a lean, unadorned parable about guilt and the nature and consequences of evil” – The LA Times
