German journalist Peter Miller (John Voigt) has become obsessed with a tightly knit group of surviving Nazi leaders whose names have been collected in something called The Odessa File. He pursues them with undying zeal at considerable personal peril and in the face of disapproval and apathy from his superiors and even his own mother who was victimized by Nazis as a young woman. His all consuming obsession in the face of the cold war German desire to just let sleeping dogs lie is perplexing to all who encounter him, but he has a very personal reason for discovering the truth. The Odessa File is based on a novel by Fredrick Forsyth and is a taut, political style thriller that has a great pay off at the end. I've both seen the film and read the book, and while the book is better (as they usually are), the film holds up its end of the bargain.
This film has been available on DVD for quite some time. It was released in 2000. It's one of those films that has cruised along under the radar, rarely seen on TV but is worthy of a look. The trailer is above, uploaded by arriegua1.
