Kurt Gerstein (Ulrich Tukur) is the German chemist who creates Zyclon-B ans is horrified to discover that the Nazi S.S. is using his invention to exterminate Jews and "political undesirables". A man of strong Christian faith, he is determined to tell the world in the hopes of stopping this genocide. He is helped in his quest by Riccardo Fontana (Mathieu Kassowitz), a Jesuit with links to the Vatican and close ties to Pope Pius XII. Nominated for 7 Cesar Awards, this compelling drama from Oscar Winning director Costa-Gavras is both thought-provoking and moving in its portrayals of two men caught up in an unimaginable situation.
