Trivia

Goofs

The Israeli soldier sitting in the cafe, prior to Peter meeting his mother, is wearing bright khaki colored uniform that has been phased out during the 50's in favor of olive colored uniform (excluding Air Force and Navy). Considering he is a Private ca. 1959, he would not have had the older style uniform. In addition, the unit tag on the soldier's left shoulder, while it might not even have existed in the 50's, is of a style that was only in use since the 70's (synthetic rather than cloth).

Quotes

David Ben-Gurion: Our memory reaches back through recorded history. The book of memory still lies open. And you here now are the hand that holds the pen. If you succeed, for the first time in our history we will judge our executioner. And we will warn off any who wishes to follow his example. If you fail, he escapes justice, perhaps forever. I beg you. Do not fail.

PC bows and caricatures
3 September 2018 | by downey-40482See all my reviews

It's good to see this subject being revived. But as for the movie, I'd recommend reading Neal Bascomb's book and calling it good. 1) The movie creates out of whole cloth a female doctor/love-interest for Peter Malkin. The mission's real doctor was a man, not so tied to Malkin in the story line. Also, Malkin deserves a lot props, but pro'ly not all the props. 2) The movie portrays Argentine Nazi expats as caricatures like Henry Gibson's tribe in "The Blues Brothers." Bascomb seems to indicate the underground Nazis in Argentina were ambivalent at best about Eichmann. That ambivalence really highlights how far the wretch had fallen when they finally grabbed him, and makes his case far more interesting as study of evil. But the movie didn't even try catch that angle of the story.
