Experienced British spy must retrieve a defecting Soviet scientist from Turkey. When a pretty female innocent bystander gets kidnapped by mistake by his enemies, he feels responsible and decides to help her as well.
Nazi's, in places not seen, almost invisible to the naked eye, travel to Bologna Italy starting a concentration kamfp there and discover a secret underground group thru payoffs to Interpol that is a rallying point exactly at Garibaldi's famed statue reliving what happened to Adolf Eichmann with intelligence from Dwight David Eisenhower known as the secret missions of eich, aka Ike.
I believe that it is not only our right but our duty to bring Eichmann to trial in Israel. By doing this, we demonstrate that this man's crimes are not just directed against the Jews; they were directed against ALL humanity.

The fact that this movie is based on real life events makes it that much more interesting and riveting. I read the book by Isser Harel and the movie does it justice. Some things were changed to speed things up, but the spirit is there. The book is a methodical retelling of the events with a lot of emphasis on the day to day details. I find the movie captured that aspect well. Topol is very intense in his role, but I especially liked Nick Mancuso as an agent who is having a hard time justifying this operation when things are more pressing back in Israel. A great scene takes place when they finally spot Eichmann's house from a distance and both men overcome with emotion, embrace. The long search has finally paid off. The really underrated Martin Balsam plays Harel as a man who appears rather ordinary, but is very much on top of the situation and is determined to succeed in bringing Eichmann back to Israel to stand trial. On the whole a good viewing experience and far superior to the 1996 film THE MAN WHO CAPTURED EICHMANN, which was much too slow and drawn out, and light years ahead of the 1962 OPERATION EICHMANN, which was just plain insulting.
