Hannah Arendt

Hannah Arendt

HANNAH ARENDT can be actually a portrait of the genius that shook the entire world with her discovery of"the banality of evil" Arendt dares to come up with the Holocaust when compared with no one has ever discovered earlier, after she attends the Nazi Adolf Eichmann's trial in Jerusalem. Her job provokes a scandal, because she is attacked by friends and foes alike and Arendt stands strong. But while the also struggles to curb her own painful associations before, the film exposes her blend of vulnerability and unhappiness -- demonstrating that the soul derailed and characterized by exile.
