Director Chris Weitz's historical thriller is based on the story of how a group of Israeli secret agents arrested notorious SS officer Adolf Eichmann - the man who masterminded the "Final Solution" - in Argentina. Oscar Isaac plays the legendary Mossad agent Peter Malkin, while Ben Kingsley plays his emotionally manipulative arch-nemesis. After tracking Eichmann down to Buenos Aires, Malkin and his men captured him and brought him to Israel for a historic 8-month trial.
Mélanie Laurent appeared in Inglourious Basterds (2009) as a Jewish girl who escapes a Nazi officer hunting her down, and later plays a key role in taking revenge against the Nazis while hiding her true identity. Here, she plays a Jewish girl hunting down an escaped Nazi high ranking officer while also hiding her identity. See more »
During the montage of passports and travel documents being prepared, the German passport that is shown twice contains so many spelling errors, missing or incorrect features, and wrong type of handwriting.
Obviously, the prop department didn't use German language spell checker and check the original passport when designing it. Frankfurt is spelt incorrectly as Frankfort on the passport and doesn't contain 'am Main' as mandatory due to two cities having same name (Frankfurt am Main in West Germany and Frankfurt an der Oder in East Germany).
'rufnamen' is incorrect: it should be capitalised and in singular tense (Rufname instead of rufnamen). The call name (Rufname) should be underlined, which the passport doesn't show. Kennzeichen is spelt incorrectly as Kennxelchen. 'und' is missing its 'd'. Bescheinigt is shown with English spelling for gh as 'bescheinight'.
Underneath the signature of passport bearer is the city, München, and doesn't show the date in the space after 'den' as required. German passports prior to the late 1970s use metal rivets to attach the photo to the passport as to prevent the counterfeit and tampering. They are difficult to remove without causing some damages to the paper. Every attached photo is always stamped half on the side with other half on the passport paper as to prevent tampering.
The handwriting is definitely American with G, H, and M along with r, 2, 4, and 9 being so different from what German handwriting is. On the right-hand page, the information is always written in block rather than cursive handwriting if a special typewriter isn't available at the government office. See more »
You have no interest in what I have to say. Unless it confirms what you think you already know.

Operation Finale is a somber film about the plan to kidnap Adolph Eichmann. As you no doubt know, Eichmann was the architect of the Final Solution...the killing of 6 million Jews. We're taken inside the planning of the kidnapping and implementation of the plan. There isn't a great deal of action, but the character development is outstanding. Lovers of history will thoroughly enjoy this true story.
