In 1960, the Israeli Secret Service learns that former SS-Lietuenant Colonel Adolf Eichmann, who was one of the key figures in the Jewish holocaust of World War II, is living under the assumed name Ricardo Clement in Argentina. The film thus explores the Isreali effort to capture Eichmann, as seen from the perspective of the leading agent of the project, as well as giving focus to Eichmann's own explanations as to the crimes he commited.Written by

Over fifteen years passed from the time of discovery (1957), that Eichmann was living in Argentina, until the man responsible received the award (1972), that had been promised. However, Lothar Hermann, a blind, half-Jewish refugee, did not receive official recognition by Israel, albeit posthumously, until 2012. See more »
In real life, the aircraft used to take Eichmann to Israel was a Bristol Britannia. However, these turboprop machines had very short working lives due to the popularity of jets and thus none were available for the film.
As a result a Boeing 707 jetliner was used instead in the film. Worse, it appears to be a JT3D-engined Intercontinental (a -320B or -320C) even though the -320B did not first fly until 1962 and the -320C was not introduced until 1964. See more »
Brilliant portrayal of how Eichmann living under a fake identity in Argentina was considered an innocent kidnap victim by local authorities unaware of his true identity yet the Nazi hunters managed to sneak him and themselves out of the country by dressing in airline personnel uniforms when boarding that plane destined for Israel.
