This film was widely seen and applauded in Israel winning the country’s top documentary award. I did not think it was a first-rate movie.
The premise is that Gerda Tuchler, grandmother of the picture’s director Arnon Goldfinger, left Germany with her husband in the mid-30’s to live in Tel Aviv. While cleaning out her apartment after her death, Goldfinger discovers that his grandparents had a relationship with a high Nazi official, Leopold von Mildenstein, who was Adolf Eichmann’s predecessor. A copy of “Der Angriff,” or “The Attack,” a Nazi paper of which Joseph Goebbels was the editor, was found in the apartment. An article in that paper reports that von Mildenstein and his wife traveled to Palestine with Gerda Tuchler and her husband. No one is able to unlock the mystery of that relationship.
I found the film to be more of a home movie rather than a documentary and one that I would not recall as memorable but rather mediocre.
