Trivia

The movie is largely based on the 1983 book 'Eichmann's Interrogated,' which contains the core of the 275 hours of pre-trial questioning of Eichmann by German-born, Israeli police officer Less, Avner W. whose actual voice is heard over the final credits. See more »

Goofs

The scene in Theresienstadt which we are told is set in April 1945 where he discusses sending trains from there to Auschwitz - a somewhat pointless exercise as the Soviet Army had liberated Auschwitz in January 1945. See more »

Quotes

Minister Tormer: There's not enough!
Avner Less: Enough what?
Minister Tormer: Enough hard evidence that his lawyer can't chip away at in court, or get him extradited to Germany. There's no death penalty in Germany. Which is ironic.

Intriguing war crimes film
9 February 2009 | by Prof-Hieronymos-GrostSee all my reviews

Renowned war criminal Adolf Eichmann has been found at large in Argentina by Israeli agents, where he is promptly kidnapped and brought to Israel for trial. Avner Less is appointed as his interrogator before the trial. The Israeli nation is baying for his blood outside, which makes Less's task of being impartial all the harder. The film revolves around their interviews, Eichmann's replies to certain questions about his past atrocities bringing us back through flashback to the war. Eichmann naturally denies the offences and puts most down to obeying orders. The cat and mouse of the interviewing process and its gradual progression is very interesting and well crafted. Thomas Kretschmann's performance in particular as Eichmann is excellent and the film belongs to him.
