Synopsis

Patagonia, 1960. An Argentinean family meets a mysterious German physician on their way to opening a lodging house by the Nahuel Huapi lake. The encounter with the family reawakens the man’s obsession with purity and perfection. Everyone is gradually won over by this charismatic man, by his elegant manners, his scientific knowledge and his money, until they discover his real identity.

Based on Lucía Puenzo's novel, the story follows Josef Mengele, the "Angel of Death," a German SS officer and a physician at the Auschwitz concentration camp, in the years he spent "hiding" in South America following his escape from Germany.

18 award nominations including Un Certain Regard, Cannes 2013
