Trivia

According to Nina Lagergren, Raoul's sister, Raoul had become increasingly frustrated over not being able to do anything about the unbearable scenes he had been witnessing. In the winter if 1942 the two spent an evening at a private film show put on by the British embassy in Stockholm, Sweden, where Pimpernel Smith was playing; she claimed "on the way home he told me that was just the kind of thing he would like to do." Two years later Wallenberg carried out just the same exploits as his role-model on a rescue mission in Budapest. See more »

Phenomenal
2 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I cannot believe that only 2 viewers have commented (3 incl, me) on this incredible film. The acting is superb, the story is phenomenal and the sheer relentlessness of this film is a sight to behold. Stellan Skarsgård is so incredible an actor. He portrays Mr. Wallenberg excellently. The Eichmann character is only seen for seconds yet his presence is felt throughout the entire film. This I found to be very convincing. It is for shame that it hasn't had more acclaim, critical or otherwise. See it! Up there with any film relating to the Holocaust. It is unfortunately very hard to download from free sites and unless you speak Swedish you'll have a hard time understanding it unless it is seen with subtitles. You will not be disappointed.
