A Forgotten Man

Based on the real-life case of Hans Frölicher - the Swiss ambassador to Nazi Germany from 1938-1945 - this stirring and reflective drama features remarkable performances from Michael Neuenschwander, Manuela Biedermann and Peter Wyssbrod. Thoughtfully and intelligently written and directed by Laurent Nègre, the film was co-produced by London-based Sovereign Films.





In May 1945, after the surrender of Nazi Germany, Heinrich Zwygart (Michael Neuenschwander) - a Swiss ambassador in Berlin - is ordered to return home. Haunted, and with an alcohol addiction, he ruminates on past decisions as he struggles to move forward.
