Oscar Isaac and Ben Kingsley star together in Operation Finale which traces the justice procedure of a ruthless Nazi Lieutenant by Israeli intelligence. The movie is directed by Chris Weitz of About A Boy fame. The screenplay of Operation Finale was provided by Matthew Orton. Operation Finale is based upon real-life events in the 1960’s when Peter Malkin (Isaac) an Israeli Intelligence Agent led a secret mission to infiltrate Argentina to capture the Nazi Lieutenant Adolf Eichmann (Kingsley). Adolf Eichmann is the final Lieutenant shamed for masterminding the set up of Concentration Camps during World War ll. He sent millions of Jews to concentration camps in the early 1940’s. Peter Malkin portrayed by Oscar Isaac finally brings Adolf Eichmann to justice. The movie is primarily made in the drama/thriller genre. A secret team of agents that sets out on this mission is a thrilling and gripping tale, to say the least.
In May of 1960, these secret Agents put an end to the capture of the last Nazi wars criminals. His was a public trial in a courtroom in Jerusalem which marked a watershed event in the global recognition of the Holocaust. Operation Finale isn’t the first movie on Adolf Eichmann’s subject. Before this movie, “The Man Who Captured Eichmann” as the name suggests also dealt with the same story. Operation Finale is under the banner of Automatik Entertainment. It is produced by Fred Berger, Oscar Isaac, Brian-Kavanaugh Jones, and Jason Spire.
