In Lichtmann’s own words, this is a “a spy movie, a fiction about a documentary, a story built with elements from History with a capital H.” In a remarkably short space of time and at a snappy pace, this film weaves a web of historical events around a fascinating mythical heroine, Laila Salama, a Jewish Argentinian spy here credited with a role in the 1960 kidnapping of Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann in Buenos Aires. Approaching the genre of personal-investigative documentary with light-hearted parody and warm homage, and boldly declaring a love for cinema as epic adventure, this is a witty delight to watch.
