Rated R · 95 minutes · 2016

Drama, Suspense/Thriller
In this gimmicky thriller, an elderly man suffering from dementia (Christopher Plummer) is so traumatized by his wife's recent death that he resolves to track down and kill the former Nazi officer, now living incognito in the U.S., who murdered the man's parents and siblings at Auschwitz. Can he carry out his mission without forgetting who he is, or where he is, or why he's gone there? Can this movie get any stupider? The premise seems richly ironic given our need to "always remember, never forget" what happened under the Third Reich, but first-time screenwriter Benjamin August has a hard time spinning it into a credible story as the old geezer makes his way across the continent in search of the fugitive Nazi. Atom Egoyan directed; the strong cast includes Dean Norris, Martin Landau, Jürgen Prochnow, and Bruno Ganz.
