2019 Boulder Jewish Film Festival - "Operation Finale"

Date: March 17, 2019
Time: 1:00 pm

The capture of Adolph Eichmann (Ben Kingsley) by a team of Mossad agents is superbly depicted in this uncommonly intelligent 2018 Hollywood thriller starring Oscar Isaac.

In 1960, a team of crack Mossad agents, many Holocaust survivors themselves, were sent on a perilous mission to Argentina. Israel’s reputation would rest on their highly symbolic success in capturing the logistical mastermind of the Final Solution, and bringing him to Israel to stand trial. Accurately based on the dangerous top-secret mission of the same name, “Operation Finale” focuses equally on heroism and humanity. Peter Malkin, portrayed as steely yet sensitive by Oscar Isaac, and his captive Eichmann (brilliantly evoked by Ben Kingsley), engage in a deadly game of cat and mouse. The electric scenes between these mortal enemies – victim and perpetrator caged together – lend a rare dimension of emotional suspense to Chris Weitz’s gripping drama of high- stakes international espionage.
