Goofs

Historical inaccuracies abound, for instance Eichmann is depicted as leaving for Hungary in 1942 - two years before he actually did so. Similarly in the scene where he is having sex with the Hungarian Baroness he enumerates the numbers of Jews he has killed - even though we have just been told that this is 1943 and in fact most of the deportations and exterminations he lists have not yet taken place. And in his later recollection of this scene in prison he states that it took place while the Reich was collapsing - although in 1943 it still ruled most of Europe. 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.

What rubbish! How were 8 Million Dollars raised for this?
8 January 2008 | by berlinkubanerSee all my reviews

My fellow countrywoman from Rio was right on target with her comments on this film. She forgot to mention the barrage of Mengele films we've had to put up with. It's believed he died near a beach here in the 80s - and his body has been exhumed a few times, for his dentist to confirm that the body was his, to collect DNA samples once DNA became irrefutable truth. We have been subjected here so many Nazi sitings & their gruesome stories that they became the South American equivalent of "Elvis sightings" on commercial TV & in the press, before cable TV & the internet in the 90s saved us from communication monopolies. But for decades, we had to endure the constant Mengele, Eichmann, Mengele, even supposed Hitler sightings in the 60s.

The S.Paulo Film Fest (Mostra.org) which takes place 2 weeks after the Rio festival closes, did not even add this film to their event. The S.Paulo Mostra usually takes advantage of unreleased films like EICHMANN, and then add some more. They always have a very large number of both German and Israeli films. Additionally, Amos Gitai, and several German directors have had retrospectives in this event recently, or have served in the jury.

I second the recommendation to skip this, and see or rent "A Specialist, portrait of a modern criminal (1999)" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0189172/ . I believe this was the long actual film of the entire trial in Israel. I think she didn't find it since the name Eichmann is not a part of the title. now THAT is heart wrenching stuff! This new EICHMANN film (as if we needed more - there are what 8 or 9 of them already including 2003's Adolf Eichmann - Begegnungen with a Murderer (2003) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0395314/ . Give him a rest, wait at least another decade for a new version, for this film reveals NOTHING new. It merely reinforces Thomas Kretschmann as the ultimate & definitive screen Nazi, the requirement for all German actresses must be darker (or bleach their hair brown) & use dark contact lenses if not natural brunettes like Franka Potente, since Jews of course have to be dark.

The plot of this film is so weak and cliché ridden, it's no wonder that now 8 months after its first showings, the film has no distributor (though you do show a May 2008 release in Holland, hardly a major market). I guess if you're under 18, and dislike documentaries, and prefer fictionalized biographies or world events, this movie is, at least, a good primer for your exploration of Nazi War criminals. For anyone else, save your money!
