Synopsis >

The sublime Barbara Sukowa reteams with director Margarethe von Trotta (Vision, Rosa Luxemburg) for her brilliant new biopic of influential German-Jewish philosopher and political theorist Hannah Arendt. Arendt s reporting on the 1961 trial of ex-Nazi Adolf Eichmann in The New Yorker controversial both for her portrayal of Eichmann and the Jewish councils introduced her now-famous concept of the Banality of Evil. Using footage from the actual Eichmann trial and weaving a narrative that spans three countries, von Trotta beautifully turns the often invisible passion for thought into immersive, dramatic cinema.
