Watch The Odessa File (1974)

In 1963, freelance journalist Peter Miller is given the diary of an old man, Solomon Tauber, who had recently committed suicide. The diary deals with Tauber's incarceration at the Riga concentration camp. Miller becomes quite interested in the camp's commander, Eduard Roschmann, who he learns vanished after the end of the war. His inquiries with the police are not well received and he is warned to be careful, something he takes quite seriously after someone tries to kill him by pushing him in front of a moving train. He learns there is an organization known by the acronym "O.D.E.S.S.A.", which assists former members of the S.S. to obtain new identities and evade the authorities. The secret organization has infiltrated all levels of German society and will apparently stop at nothing to protect its members. Israeli intelligence is also keen on infiltrating O.D.E.S.S.A. and satisfied that Miller isn't an impostor, assist him in going undercover as a former S.S. camp guard needing assistance. Miller is soon found out by those who run the organization, but he manages to locate Roschman nonetheless. Miller, it turns out, has his own personal reasons for having wanted to find him....

This is really high class movie and I really love it. Most movies, even the greatest ones, evaporate like mist once you've returned to the real world; they leave memories behind, but their reality fades free quickly. But not with this one :). I will tell you something. I ended up watching it four times whole movie online in the web, almost without breaks. The Odessa File is movie, you will watch whole, more than once. The variety of dialogues, which is the power of this production, excites the viewer, especially against today's movies that are clearly weak and so boring. I can't say that I'm a big fan of Action, but I liked it!. Don't waste your time, click on play button and watch.... Show more
