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.

Wooden script and lead performance
12 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
