2002, Cohen Film Collection, 132 min, France / Germany / Romania, Dir: Costa-Gavras

Acclaimed director Costa-Gavras’ thought-provoking adaptation of Rolf Hochhuth’s play The Deputy frames larger historical issues in compelling human drama by focusing on two individuals mired in the bureaucracy of mass murder during WWII. German SS officer Kurt Gerstein (Ulrich Tukur) is shocked to discover that the process he developed to eradicate typhus is being used to exterminate Jews. Believing that public awareness would bring an end to Nazi genocide, he turns to the Vatican, where a young priest (Mathieu Kassovitz) tries to help Gerstein make his case to Pope Pius XII.
