Simone, a Jewish surgeon and son of a Holocaust survivor, makes a split-second decision at the scene of a hit-and-run accident involving a neo-Nazi. Racked with guilt, the anguished doctor seeks to learn more about the victim’s family, setting in motion a series of events that further complicate his life as he seeks to deal with his own emotional turmoil. Thou Shalt Not Hate is a gripping drama, that plays like a thriller, posing challenging and profound questions about the nature of redemption. Award-winning actor Alessandro Gassmann is mesmerizing as Simone in this masterpiece by Mauro Mancini.
