Beate Klarsfeld:a heroine of our time.
Directed by Lindsay-Hog many users know as the man who directed the ill-fated (but absorbing)"let it be" starring the Beatles.
Based on Beate Klarsfeld's true story,an admirable woman who discovered the horrors of the holocaust.A lawyer,but a non-Jew,abetted by her (Jewish) husband,she would dedicate her efforts to find the war criminals ,which would lead to the arrest of Klaus Barbie.
Some people complained because they cast Farah Fawcett ,a sex symbol and an ex-Charlie's angel as the lead.But the actress displays determination and resilience.Her best scene is when she's alone on the streets in Brazil and tries to urge the people to help her catch a man "who killed women and children during WW2".
An above average made-for-TV work.Its current rating of 7,3 is well deserved.
