Ambitiously structured, this 2009 Austrian drama depicts three separate families across several generations and in numerous countries. The plot hinges on the meeting between a computer game designer (also the son of a liberal politician) and a Nazi war criminal who's been hiding out on Long Island for decades. Director Michael Glawogger, best known here for his globalization documentaries Workingman's Death and Whores' Glory, keeps this moving like a good paperback mystery, for better and for worse. When the movie confronts a major issue like the Holocaust or contemporary political corruption, the revelations feel trite and oversimplified. In subtitled German and some English.
