Not exactly enjoyable…but well done.
This is the second or third film I’ve seen that dramatizes the events leading to the capture of Adolph Eichmann. However, this one focuses less on how they discovered this evil man hiding in Argentina and more on what happened after he was captured and before he was spirited off to Israel to face a trial for crimes against humanity.
Of course, such a film isn’t going to be fun viewing but the film is not as intense and filled with much footage of the actions of this monster or the SS. As a result, it’s probably a good film to show your older kids or teens…of course, provided you watch it with them and help explain the context for the real life drama.
Overall, very well made and worth seeing….and quite interesting.
Well Told History Lesson
This is based upon a True Story
1960 in Argentina, Israeli Mossad Agents track down Adolph Eichmann (Ben Kingsley) who masterminded the Final Solution for Germany during WW II.
How was Eichmann located? Klaus Eichmann (Joe Alwyn) was seeing Sylvia Hermann (Haley Lu Richardson), and Klaus told Sylvia’s father Lothar (Peter Strauss) that his father was killed in the war. Lothar, though blind, felt Klaus was the son of Adolph Eichmann who masterminded the killing of 6-million Jews in Germany in WWII. Sylvia goes to Klaus’s house to apologize for leaving him at a gathering at night and heard Klaus call Adolph Eichmann “father.” The word got around and the Israelis now knew where Eichmann is. The plan is to fly him to Israel to stand trial.
The rest of the movie has Adolph Eichmann at a Safe House until he can be flown out of Argentina. There are delays, and the gov’t wants proof that Eichmann voluntarily agrees to go to Israel to be tried for war crimes. Eichmann refuses to sign the document agreeing to this.
The dialogues between Eichmann and Peter Malkin at the Safe House are quite revealing, but keep in mind Malkin is still trying to get Eichmann to sign that document.
Notables: Melanie Laurent as Hanna, the doctor who was needed to go to Argentina to help bring Eichmann to Israel; Oscar Isaac as Peter Malkin, the Agent, who captured Eichmann and who tried to get Eichmann to sign that document to allow him to go to Israel.
Give Ben Kingsley the Oscar as he gave a truly brilliant performance as Adolph Eichmann.
See statements at the end to learn what happened to Eichmann and Peter Malkin. (9/10)
