Screened at numerous festivals last summer under the more descriptive title ‘The German Doctor’, this true-life chiller explores how Nazi surgeon Joseph Mengele managed to evade capture in the post-war years lodging with an Argentinian family who knew nothing of his previous concentration camp activities. Set in the '60s, the film stars Alex Brendemühl as Mengele, and looks at his affair with innocent young Lilith, and his burgeoning interest in genetic research. The poster and trailer do their best to make ‘Wakolda’ look like a slightly stuffy, old-fashioned thriller, but with ‘XXY’ and ‘The Fish Child’ director Lucia Punezo behind the camera we suspect it’ll turn out to be something more challenging and engaging.
