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

Historical inaccuracies abound, for instance Eichmann is depicted as leaving for Hungary in 1942 - two years before he actually did so. Similarly in the scene where he is having sex with the Hungarian Baroness he enumerates the numbers of Jews he has killed - even though we have just been told that this is 1943 and in fact most of the deportations and exterminations he lists have not yet taken place. And in his later recollection of this scene in prison he states that it took place while the Reich was collapsing - although in 1943 it still ruled most of Europe. See more »

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.
Baroness Ingrid von Ihama: You don't go far enough... while you can.
Adolf Eichmann: I don't go far enough?
Baroness Ingrid von Ihama: Out of 900,000 Hungarian Jews you have killed only half a million. You're careless. You let them slip through your fingers.
Adolf Eichmann: Poland - three million Jews. Today none ...

Less Drama
14 October 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have to agree with everything lexo said about this drama; and I say drama because I was never wholly convinced I was witnessing history.

When I bought this title I was expecting a detailed examination of "the architect of Hitler's plan"; no matter the bias. All I received in return was a turgid family drama set against a few pointless conversations between the police captain Less and Eichmann. Once sensationalised by dubious episodes in the man's Nazi career all that remained were constant accusations and denials by Less and Eichmann. Admittedly this man may not have been exciting or even entertaining within the Nazi regime, but one thing he most certainly was, was life-changing.

There is an interested audience for films that seek to examine the minds of the "architects of Hitler's plan", as Oliver Hirschbiegel's "Downfall" has shown. Studying German history I was more concerned with the Socialists than the National Socialists, but the Nazi motivation and objectives are still a fascinating aspect of 20th Century History. "Eichmann" however does nothing to advance the understanding of the Nazis, nor the Eichmann that oiled the wheels of the Holocaust, and seems more like Jewish apologia for interrogating Eichmann by a man who suffered personal tragedy in the Holocaust, convicted him on mere supposition and rumour, and murdered him because of intense social and political pressure.
