Our decisions are based not only on rational conclusions, but to a certain
(and relatively large) amount on our emotions that might even contradict
This however is due to the fact that we are human beings and we learned to
deal with this, as we have to balance this equation every day to come to
decisions. Most of the time we're not even aware of this any more, but the
more rationality and emotional state drift apart, the stronger becomes our
If this struggle is forced to its extremes, man at a point becomes aware
that he is stuck, stuck with a burden he is not able to carry, nor able to
rid himself of it. At some point there he loses the ability to live and
to rack and ruin.
And here, at its extremes, the movie fades in.
Based on the story `Vati' by Peter Schneider, "Papà" tells the story of
Hermann (Kretschmann), a young man who never got the chance to consciously
meet his father, picked on and beaten up in school for reasons he could
imagine, tolerated by his teachers, but treated like a
Growing up he will discover that it was not him who created all this
but his name.
Hermann, now a full-grown man, takes the chance to travel to South America
to meet his father for the first time - a man who as a doctor and genetic
scientist is responsible for the death of thousands of prisoners in the
concentration camp of Auschwitz, responsible for ghastly human experiments
he performed on children and new-borns, a man who decided between
imprisonment and "Vergasung".
"Der Todesengel" of Auschwitz Dr. Josef Mengele (Charlton Heston) has -
the help of his family and friends - managed to escape trial by fleeing to
Hermann wants to confront his father with his past, somehow yearns for
answers that do not exist, or if they did, are those of another generation
which are not understandable.
But his slight hope to convince his father to face his past and give
up to the police quickly vanishes as not only Hermann, but also his father
has been waiting for this meeting for ages, convinced to get his own flesh
and blood on his side, to rid Hermann of the "lies of his
What follows is a cold war between father and son. Hermann finds himself
torn apart by his struggle of doing the only rational thing - denouncing
own father - or surrender to his uncertain emotions and cover
Can there be a bond between father and son so strong that a
mass-murder-identity can be accepted by the ladder, even though they
know each other?
Has Hermann any right to cover his father or would he cover himself with
guilt as well?
This movie is not only about the struggle of a young man he won't be able
win, nor is it only the biography of the KZ Arzt Dr. Mengele.
"My father" covers even more.
It depicts the human desire of justice, a somehow strange and unfortunate
desire as in this case it cannot be satisfied.
It hints the victims' states of mind that will never ever get "justice".
Could the capture of this man make up for the enormous pain the victims
Definitely not, but it would have helped to ease another pain - the total
helplessness derived from the idea of the most wanted mass-murder alive at
that time to escape trial and live in peace till the end of his days. A
that "does not deserve to rest".
It is this helplessness in the end that makes it so hard for the victims
left behind without the chance of justice to accept their torturer's
Mengele dies in 1979 near Sao Paulo under mysterious circumstances leaving
enough room for speculation he might perhaps once and for all have escaped
persecution by faked death.
However six years after this incident the israelian secret service will
his grave; examination of the skeleton and teeth will confirm Mengele's
Heston's performance as Dr. Josef Mengele is completely stunning, a role
played so convincing and strong (his pro-rifle propaganda rallies across
country for the NRA might have been the ideal training) that his charisma
and pure darwinistic lectures given to his son overlay his
mass-murder-identity. And at some point you might catch yourself, deeply
shocked, thinking of this murderer as a poor old man who might as well be
just a victim of a horrible system.
Sure, this choice of cast felt strange at the beginning, but after seeing
the result, I could not think of any better choice. And as Peter Schneider
said: "Be honest, would you rather have liked to see a Dustin Hoffman or
Richard Gere in this role?" Nothing more to add to this.
Kretschmann plays the role of Hermann with great routine which is
exactly what he lacks when it comes to discussing the movie or giving us
idea of how he felt playing this character. No bad intention, but on the
screen he seems to feel much more comfortable than in front of an
but who am I to blame him.
The struggle that the hero of this movie Hermann has to go through on the
screen, definitely a fight he cannot win (whatever his decision may be at
the end), is projected onto the audience ( thank god we don't have to cope
with that for a lifetime ). And if it was for this effect alone, "my
would be a success.
