William Wolff is nearly
 90 and perhaps the most unconventional rabbi in the world. As the State Rabbi of North-East Germany, he looks after the Jewish communities in Schwerin and Rostock, but still lives in a bungalow near Henley-on-Thames. Wolff, a deeply religious man, is blessed with a tremendous joie de vivre that defies all conventions.

Germany, 2016, 90 mins., directed by Britta Wauer, German with English subtitles.
