This has got to be one of the most underrated & least known Holocaust films, and yet it has a first rate performance of an Oscar winning actor, Sir Ben Kingsley (also of Schindler's List). This is the movie based on Simon Weisenthal's memoirs, one of the most coveted heros of our time. GET THIS OUT ON DVD!!!! This is a great film that was made for HBO, but the production values and the writing could have allowed it to be a major motion picture. I put it up there with many great recent Holocaust and WWII films, such as "Schindler's List" and "The Pianist." This is an absolutely mezmorizing film and shows how Simon Weisenthal was rescued from a living hell when his concentration camp was liberated, and how he resolved with great courage to fight for the six million that can not fight back. It also shows flashbacks to the horrors he survived during the years in the ghetto and concentration camps. It also highlights how he helped the Israelis capture Eichmann. Amazing footage, and superb acting. The beginning of the film is especially moving as the Americans liberate the camp, and a we get a closeup of a soldier's reaction (Craig T. Nelson) as he comes face to face with the "living dead" that surround his entourage. It's in slow motion, and very powerful, makes me cry each time I watch my old taped copy.
