2013, Samuel Goldwyn Films, 93 min, Argentina, Dir: Lucía Puenzo

As WWII ground to a close, many Nazis fled Germany for South America; the notorious Josef Mengele hid with a family in Bariloche, Argentina, in writer-director Lucía Puenzo’s fictionalized thriller. Àlex Brendemühl is chilling as the German doctor, who offers to treat underdeveloped Lilith (Florencia Bado) before the trusting girl’s parents realize who he is. This impressively crafted and subtle film was an Un Certain Regard nominee at the Cannes Film Festival. In Spanish, German, and Hebrew with English subtitles.
