The Champagne Spy, Excellent Documentary. Wolfgang Lotz.
3 June 2007 | by shmulik-cohenSee all my reviews

Real Documentary of amazing real Spy Story. So well done that many of the characters involved take part. Meir Amit The head of the Mossad in the Sixties and many others. As much Original Photo's and Video Clips as possible. Lotz wrote books (I have one of them) and lectured World wide after the Prisoner Exchange in 1968. Also the main Story Teller is Lotz's Son. They moved to Paris and Lotz would "Go On Important Business" for several months, Leaving his wife and son in Paris. Nadav Schirman the Director has done it very well including exciting music in the BackGround. Egyptians like Spy Stories about Israel, Here is a real One. It is Not 007 Fantasy. The sad parts of the Documentary are also shown. Lotz got so used to High Class Society and Germans that eventually he returned to Germany and died there. His son lives in USA. This is tragic considering what they did for Israel. Lotz Foiled Nazi Scientists Activities in Egypt. Comparable to the Documentary about Marlene Dietrich.
