According to CIA documents released in 2006, U.S. and West German intelligence knew that Eichmann was hiding in Argentina in 1958. But they revealed nothing, fearing he might expose former comrades who had been useful to the CIA or the German government. See more »
The scene in Theresienstadt which we are told is set in April 1945 where he discusses sending trains from there to Auschwitz - a somewhat pointless exercise as the Soviet Army had liberated Auschwitz in January 1945. See more »
[''Eichmann and the Baroness are making out. Eichmann boasts about the number of Jews he has ordered to their deaths throughout Europe as "sex talk"'']
Your ancestor would have approved my modern victory against the Orients. In six months I cleansed Vienna of every Jew.

As I'm sure is the case with others, I'm familiar with the story of the kidnapping of Eichmann from Argentina through the many made-for-TV movies depicting the event. Those movies were always interesting and watchable as they tended to focus more on the Mossad operation put together to capture Eichmann. This film is basically nothing more than an interrogation (with some flashback scenes thrown in) and, as such, really a battle of wits between Eichmann, who tries to portray himself solely as an uber-efficient paper pusher, and the Israeli interrogator tasked with getting a confession out of him. The problem is, while Eichmann is somewhat fleshed out in the flashback scenes and Kretschmann does a fine job with what he's given, the character of the Israeli interrogator is flat-out boring and the actor's performance simply wooden. There are no sparks between the cop and the bad guy. No witty repartee or shock disclosures that make the interrogator question his assumptions, even if just for a moment. The ending of this film is ridiculous. Not even a shot of the hangman's noose to give us closure! Just someone talking over a radio in the background. This was a very poorly constructed movie featuring one of the most wooden performances I've seen in years.
