After tracking Eichmann down to Buenos Aires, Malkin and his men captured him and brought him to Israel for a historic 8-month trial.

Trivia

Eichmann was previously played by Robert Duvall in The Man Who Captured Eichmann (1996), making this the second role that Duvall and Sir Ben Kingsley have shared. They previously played Doctor Watson, in The Seven-Per-Cent Solution (1976) and Without a Clue (1988). See more »

Goofs

The Mossad team's escape from Argentina is delayed because El Al demands a signed statement from Eichmann swearing that he is travelling voluntarily. The obvious solution--forge the statement--is shot down because Mossad doesn't have any samples of Eichmann's signature. If Mossad has no samples of his signature, El Al certainly don't and can't challenge the veracity of the forgery. See more »

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.

not so bad
6 October 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

The only serious problem is the good intention in this case. The high ambition , too. Because the film has the right story and the right actors. But not the right director. The film is far to be bad and the music saves many errors or flaws. Ben Kingsley deserves the role of Eichman and the subject is fascinating. But it has not the chance to be the first film about the operation to find Adolf Eichman and the mistake of director remains to give a film who seems reduce the importance of Shoah and propose a love story who escapes to it . But , sure, it has the virtue to be the start point for viewer to discover the real story of the operation.
