Dir. Lars Kraume, color, 105 min., Germany 2015

Germany, 1957. The Hessian Chief Public Prosecutor Fritz Bauer receives vital clues about the whereabouts of SS Lieutenant Colonel Adolf Eichmann, a key figure in the mass deportations and murders of European Jews. Allegedly, Eichmann is hiding in Buenos Aires. Fritz Bauer, a Jew and Social Democrat, who had made it his objective since returning from Danish exile to bring perpetrators of the Nazi regime before the courts, tries to arrange the trial of Adolf Eichmann in West Germany.

"Energizing the entire film (...) is the compelling performance of veteran German actor Burghart Klaußner, who captures Bauer's firebrand intensity exactly. (Kenneth Turan, L.A. Times)
