Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
The man responsible for the destruction of more than six million lives accounts for his role as the architect of Adolf Hitler's final solution in this historical drama starring Stephen Fry, Franka Potente, and Thomas Kretschmann. Based on the final confession made by Adolf Eichmann just before his execution in Israel, director Robert Young's film begins 15 years after the World War II has ended. Eichmann has been captured by Israeli intelligence. As a senior officer in the SS, Eichmann played a pivotal role in making the Holocaust a nightmarish reality. Now, as Eichmann prepares to die in front of the entire world, he accounts for his participation in one of the greatest atrocities ever committed.
