Nazi Hunters
22 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

Surprising to see the negative response this film has received on this site.

It is a usually convincing account of a Nazi Hunter couple who dedicated themselves to tracking down Klaus Barbie - "the Butcher of Lyons", which moves briskly through a complicated and occasionally confusing succession of events spread between Europe and South America. It gives the impression of being special pleading, using a limited budget effectively. It's not outclassed by the more ambitious MUNICH, which shares some of its personnel and intended audience.

Touches register, like the meager life style of the Klarsfeld's contrasted with the luxury of Barbie's existence or Attal's clicking the hammer on the empty pistol held against another target to demonstrate the possibility of his assassination,

Maybe I'm sheltered from the short comings of the spoken material by my ignorance of most of the languages but the always impressive Franka Potente speaking them, manages to convince me.

Attal's awful hair piece is the major distraction.
