A brilliant biopic of the influential German-Jewish philosopher and political theorist. Arendt's reporting on the 1961 trial of ex-Nazi Adolf Eichmann in The New Yorker, controversial both for her portrayal of Eichmann and the Jewish councils, introduced her now-famous concept of the ’Banality of Evil.’ Using footage from the actual Eichmann trial, von Trotta beautifully turns the often invisible passion for thought into dramatic cinema.
