1942. Gilles, a young Belgian man, is arrested by the SS alongside other Jews and sent to a concentration camp in Germany. He narrowly avoids execution by swearing to the guards that he is not Jewish, but Persian. This lie temporarily saves him, but then Gilles is assigned a seemingly untenable mission: to teach Persian to Koch, the officer in charge of the camp's kitchen, who dreams of opening a restaurant in Persia (Iran) once the war is over. Gilles finds himself having to invent a language he doesn't know, word by word. As the unusual relationship between the two men begins to incite jealousy and suspicion, Gilles becomes acutely aware that one false move could expose his swindle.

Well made and well acted but Ilja Zofin's script is filled with well-trodden World War II tropes, and the longer this improbable parable goes on, the less convincingly it holds up.

Kermode & Mayo's Film Review
It does feel like a packaged story, like a is played very well, with those two performances actually working surprisingly well...

The ending's a tear-jerker, but it's too little too late.
