Movie Info

Ben Kingsley stars as Simon Weisenthal, an Austrian Jew who is interred in the Malthausen concentration camp during World War II. When the camp is liberated, it is Weisenthal's eyewitness testimony, coupled with sketches that he's made of the many Nazi atrocities, that leads to the capture of Malthausen's escaped commandants. Weisenthal goes on to join the American War Crimes unit, collecting evidence for the Nuremberg trials. Eventually he dedicates his life to tracking down Nazi war criminals, at great personal cost to himself and his wife (Renee Soutendjik). His most daunting task is to convince his daughter (Louisa Haigh) that he is pursuing justice, not vengeance. Made for HBO, Murderers Among Us: The Simon Wiesenthal Story premiered April 22, 1989.

Audience Reviews for Murderers Among Us: The Simon Wiesenthal Story

½

A good performance from Ben Kingsley. A less good performance from everyone else. The Nazi prison guards were the worst, with their cheesy attempts to seem sinister and threatening coming off so badly that I actually felt sorry for them. Not exactly the emotion the filmmakers had in mind.
