"A film like a movie thriller. Rudolph Herzog grippingly tells the life story of Werner Stiller who was given a new identity by the CIA."

NEUE OSNABRÜCKER ZEITUNG
„a thrilling book and a lavish documentary“
- DER SPIEGEL
„this documentary manages to reveal something new even to
those viewers who consider themselves to be fully informed
on Nazi history“
– DIE SÜDDEUTSCHE
engaging characters imbue the pic with depth and emotional appeal
An enjoyable three-part series from producer David Glover
(„The Tourist Trap“) and director Rudolph Herzog (son of Werner)
which pits five of „the most dastardly criminals ever recruited“
against the security of four „major institutions“.
- THE GUARDIAN
"This film succeeds in documenting a voyage into the unknown - it shows how the crew survives in a confined space, with no kitchen, no bathroom and no escort vessel. They are confronted with excruciatingly calm seas and extreme storms, and are torn between optimism and despair."
“It is arguably not possible to imagine human stupidity on a grander scale than what Rudolph Herzog has stockpiled in his new book.”
"Filmaker Rudolph Herzog succeeds in putting across the full drama of this daring adventure [...] In the stillness of one's sitting-room, one is nothing short of amazed - and how often is one truly astonished in front of the television?"
"a haunting and well phrased warning"
"retraces an extraordinary trajectory that took (Stiller) from a small village in Thuringia to the heart of the CIA."
