Storyline

Joseph, a retired New York police officer, played by the late Roy Scheider, travels to Nuremberg to visit his son Ronnie years after turning his back on him for rejecting a promising career in the NYPD and marrying a local artist, Anna. No sooner does Joseph attempt to heal the rift with Ronnie, when he swears that living in the apartment above, under the false name of Shrager, is the now aging SS Commander who murdered his entire family in a Polish forest during WW2. With little hope of seeing him stand trial, Joseph talks Ronnie into exacting justice - and vengeance - and together they set out to kill him. Meanwhile, a mysterious woman, Gaby, has an agenda of her own. With flashbacks to the past, revealing the teenage love of Young Joseph for a heroic Polish girl, Kashka and his narrow escape from the massacre, the story reaches a gripping and unforgettable climax.

Trivia

When developing the script Joshua Newton, Iron Cross' Writer and Director, asked himself what his father would do in the event that discovered the man who murdered his family during the holocaust. The character of Joseph played by Roy Scheider is loosely based on Joshua Newton's father Bruno Newton, who died during the filming; from the same disease that took Roy Scheider's life nine months later.

Roy Scheider's performance resonates
8 October 2010 | by (Boston) – See all my reviews

"Iron Cross" features the late actor Roy Scheider in his last performance. Once again, Scheider's portrayal of his character is captivating and moving. This film is fast paced and will keep you guessing about where the story is taking the audience. The locations that are utilized in the movie make a visual impact upon viewers. Helmut Berger is wonderful in his role as the former officer who is hiding his true identity. The scenes between Scheider and Burger are intense. This is a fine film to end the career of an esteemed actor like Scheider. The soundtrack is outstanding and compliments the plot well. Finally "Iron Cross" imparts a message that is critical to future societies throughout the world. It is important that the memory of this dark time in history is kept in the forefront.
