Reviews

 

 

"Thanks to her smart narration — clear, impassioned but never polemical — and the astute way she allows exceptional footage to play out to its full extent, “The Waldheim Waltz” has a sense of urgency made more pressing given political developments not just in Austria but Poland and Hungary as well."

Jay Weissberg - Variety

 

"With its withering exposé of a politically—and, greater still, morally—crippling guilt remarkably, tragically, and deftly managed by a seasoned professional on his rise to the highest of powers, The Waldheim Waltz is, obviously, brutally relevant not only for its native Austria, whose new 31-year-old Chancellor has raised alarm bells of conservative extremity, but also for all world leaders who have the ghastly ability to somehow survive the fiercest and most upright scrutiny."

Daniel Kasman - Mubi

 

 

THE WALDHEIM WALTZ

p6a6_KurtWaldheim2--1.jpg

DCP/HD • Austria • 2018 • 93’

 Directed by:  Ruth Beckermann 

Produced by: Ruth Beckermann Film Production

Original languages: German, English, French

 

 

A film about truth and lies and how a dishonest man can rise to power.

 

Ruth Beckermann documents the process of uncovering former UN Secretary General Kurt Waldheim’s wartime past. It shows the swift succession of new allegations by the World Jewish Congress during his Austrian presidential campaign, the denial by the Austrian political class, the outbreak of anti-Semitism and patriotism, which finally led to his election.

 

Created from international archive material and what Beckermann shot at the time, the film shows that history repeats itself time and time again.
