“From start to finish, it’s absorbing.” – New York Times

Having received intelligence about Adolf Eichmann’s whereabouts, German-Jewish public prosecutor Fritz Bauer needs to tread carefully. On one side, there are German officials who would do all they can to thwart his operation. On the other, there is the Israeli Mossad, where priorities are given to more immediate threats. Bauer does what he must for the benefit of both his nation and his fellow Jewish people. A stylish and thrilling film that uncovers the politics behind the capture of the architect of the Holocaust.
