    The story-telling is a little too pat to deliver the surprise moments that reveal character or sweep audiences up emotionally. The film remains a creepy story with a lot of morbid fascination, set off by the captivating young Florencia Bado in her first screen role. show more

    The German Doctor is never showy or melodramatic — just a kind of true-life horror story about the helpful, soft-spoken monster in our midst. show more

    A good look back at the ambiance surrounding pre and post WW II Argentina (specifically Bariloche). True story? I don't know but Mengele was certainly in the area...I found myself in Bariloche with the movie.
