More objective filmmakers might have delved a little deeper and produced something more real.
It's an exercise in hero worship that couldn't be more justified, even though Wiesenthal would have been modestly embarrassed by the honor.
Persuasive and engaging, if one-sided. It could be argued there is only one side to argue.
The film successfully contextualizes [Wisenthal's] legacy for a new generation.
[Director] Trank is so busy fashioning [Wiesenthal] as a superhero that little light is shed on the man's relentlessness and his stubborn determination to keep his data center in Vienna even under siege from a shabby Austrian smear campaign.
The film dramatically shows how many of the criminals on Wiesenthal's lists were eventually sent to jail or died from heart attacks or suicide when they were at last located.
An overdue testament to a one-man six-million man march in memory of all those who no longer had a voice.
Much more than a hagiography, the film nevertheless cannot escape the charge of being excessively reverential. But it is nonetheless a compelling portrait of a man's important legacy to history.
A tragic, inspiring film.
The sheer power of Simon Wiesenthal's remarkable story is what propels this heartfelt documentary tribute.
In this obviously loving, respectful and generous documentary, Simon Wiesenthal is presented as a lone warrior on the trail of Nazi war criminals.
[A] surprisingly lively biography.
[font=Century Gothic]"I Have Never Forgotten You" is an enthralling documentary about Simon Wiesenthal, war crimes investigator, that by relying on mostly interviews with him before his death in 2005, allows him to tell his story in his own words.(There are also interviews with friends and family plus Ben Kingsley(who portrayed Wiesenthal in a made for TV movie) and Frederick Forsyth(who based a character on him in the novel of "The Odessa File."). All of which is supplemented by archival footage.) [/font]
[font=Century Gothic]While "I Have Never Forgotten You" demystifies Wiesenthal, it also goes to great lengths to speak of his personal courage in seeking justice not vengeance for the victims of the Holocaust in the years after World War II when hunting war criminals was not a high priority for governments who were preoccupied with the Cold War.(Nearly all of Wiesenthal's extensive family had died in concentation camps. He had survived several until ending up at Mauthausen which was liberated by American troops in May 1945.) Not making his task any easier was being based in Austria, a country with a long history of anti-Semitism that just wanted to put the war behind it. But Wiesenthal wanted people to remember and for just cause, to make sure that this would never happen again.(He would later be involved in other genocide investigations.) Not until the 1960's did he gets his first break when he aided in the capture of Adolf Eichmann. The renown gained from that success allowed him free access to the media and power brokers which he used wisely. [/font]
