Excellent movie with Götz George as Mengels. Back in Germany, he's ask about the crimes of the Nazis. Doing that, he questions our own attitude towards crime. It's hard not to get into deep thoughts after seeing «After the truth». The final scene is quiet compelling. It's very interesting to see such a movie coming out in today's Germany.
