Critic Reviews for The German Doctor
Puenzo's initial premise is more promising, though, than her sensational tone.
This curious, surprisingly safe melodrama fictionalises the postwar life of brutal Nazi surgeon Josef Mengele.
Puenzo masterfully balances the film's thriller edge with disturbing details about Mengele's obsession with genetic experimentation, as well as the community of German expatriates in Argentina helping old Nazis elude arrest.
Puenzo has a knack for plumbing the heads and hearts of teenage girls. The director coaxes a mesmerizing, unmannered performance out of Bado, who is making her feature-film debut.
