Trivia

According to a British reporter on location, fellow cast members Troy Garity and Thomas Kretschmann were so upset with script revisions of the baby-in-office scene that Kretschmann promptly threw them in the trash, explaining, 'I'll just file this here for safekeeping.' The revisions were later dropped. See more »

Goofs

(at around 1 min) In the scene where the minister leaves the room after telling Avner that his father had been sent to Auschwitz by Eichmann, a large contemporary map of Europe is visible on the wall. The maps contains the re-unified Germany, the successor states of the Soviet Union, the broken up former Yugoslavia, and the split Czech and Slovak Republics - which is the late 1990s status and not 1960/61.

Quotes

Adolf Eichmann: [''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.

Intriguing war crimes film
9 February 2009 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Renowned war criminal Adolf Eichmann has been found at large in Argentina by Israeli agents, where he is promptly kidnapped and brought to Israel for trial. Avner Less is appointed as his interrogator before the trial. The Israeli nation is baying for his blood outside, which makes Less's task of being impartial all the harder. The film revolves around their interviews, Eichmann's replies to certain questions about his past atrocities bringing us back through flashback to the war. Eichmann naturally denies the offences and puts most down to obeying orders. The cat and mouse of the interviewing process and its gradual progression is very interesting and well crafted. Thomas Kretschmann's performance in particular as Eichmann is excellent and the film belongs to him.
