About the Movie

Germany, 1957. Attorney General Fritz Bauer receives crucial evidence on the whereabouts of SS-Obersturmbannführer Adolf Eichmann. The lieutenant colonel, responsible for the mass deportation of the Jews, is allegedly hiding in Buenos Aires. Bauer, himself Jewish, has been trying to take crimes from the Third Reich to court ever since his return from Danish exile. However, there is little success so far due to the fierce German determination to repress its sinister past. Due to his distrust in the German justice system, Fritz Bauer contacts the Israeli secret service Mossad, and by doing so, commits treason. Bauer is not seeking revenge for the Holocaust - he is concerned with the German future.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: From start to finish, it's absorbing. – Ken Jaworowski, New York Times, Aug 18, 2016

Fresh: Though relatively conservative in its approach, Lars Kraume's teleplay-style treatment of a still-touchy subject has the nerve to name names, implicating everyone from chancellor Konrad Adenauer to Mercedes-Benz. – Peter Debruge, Variety, Jul 26, 2016

Fresh: Klaussner's fine performance keeps us on edge through most of the film, even though we know the result. – Leba Hertz, San Francisco Chronicle, Aug 24, 2016

Fresh: Klaussner's powerful performance as Bauer ... snaps the picture back into focus. – Peter Keough, Boston Globe, Sep 8, 2016
