Jewish-German philosopher Hannah Arendt fled from Nazi Germany to the United States, where she, among other things, worked as a university tutor. Then The New Yorker sent her to cover the trial of Adolf Eichmann in Israel and she wrote her book A Report on the Banality of Evil, that started a controversy. Using footage from the actual Eichmann trial and weaving a narrative that spans three countries, director Margarethe von Trotta beautifully turns the often invisible passion for thought into immersive, dramatic cinema.
