Summary: The year is 1965. Rachel Brener is one of three young Mossad agents team who caught 'The Surgeon of Birkenau', a Nazi who was practising as a gynaecologist in Berlin, and is wanted for horrible experimental operations on Jews during WWII. He was never brought to trial in Israel. Instead he was shot and killed by Rachel Brener after he had attacked her and tried to escape. But it's not actually what happened, and now their long kept secret that they tried to keep buried is on the rise and they must finish the job they were sent to do over 30 years ago.
My Thoughts: "I was interested in seeing the original film before seeing the American version. I was pleased with the movie. It's really interesting and very intense all the way through. Rachel goes to great lengths in trying to succeed in her mission. The outcome was a surprise for me a bit. I really enjoyed it. Smart script with a good cast and great acting. Be sure to see this one as well as the American remake."
A suspenseful, well-acted, ambivalent yet contrived film about horror and secrets which uses music powerfully.
pendantic but necessarily so. the flashbacks were done in an nondisruptive and logical manner that sustained the flow of the story. the understated acting and deliberations provided the right covert atmosphere the piece required.
an excellant insight on how one would expect the mossad to execute their mission.
