Patagonia, 1960. A German doctor (Alex Brendemühl) meets an Argentinean family and follows them on a long desert road to a small town where the family will be starting a new life. Eva (Natalia Oreiro), Enzo (Diego Peretti) and their three children welcome the doctor into their home and entrust their young daughter, Lilith (Florencia Bado), to his care, not knowing that they are harboring one of the most dangerous criminals in the world. At the same time, Israeli agents are desperately looking to bring The German Doctor to justice.

  • 4 stars "Superb film. A true story that centres on the deranged mind of the infamous Auschwitz Doctor Josef Mengele and his attempt to avoid capture during his temporary stay in the Patagonian mountain region of Argentina. A very definite Hitchcock feel to this film where no one is who they appear to be. Quidos to director Lucia Puenzo and actor Alex Brendumuhl."
