Adolf Eichmann, the key administrator of the Nazis' "Final Solution", is to be the subject of a UK-financed biopic.

Entitled Eichmann, the film will be based on the confessions of the SS officer who was in charge of the logistics of mass deportation and extermination camps.

After the second world war, Eichmann escaped to Buenos Aires, where in 1960 he was kidnapped by agents of Israel's secret service, Mossad. He was put on trial in Jerusalem in 1961, sentenced and hanged.

Before his execution, Eichmann was cross-examined by an Israeli police officer called Captain Avner Less. The biopic will be based on this cross-examination, with flashbacks to the 1940s.

The title role will be portrayed by German superstar Thomas Kretschmann, a man who has had his fair share of second world war characters. He played an SS officer stuck in Hitler's bunker in 2004's Downfall, a Wehrmacht captain who saves Adrien Brody's life in Roman Polanski's The Pianist, and an army lieutenant battling in 1993's Stalingrad.

Less will be played by American actor Troy Garity, who appeared in the Pierce Brosnan action film After the Sunset in 2004. Garity is also Jane Fonda's son.

Stephen Fry will also appear in the film, although it is unclear what part he will play. The £3m British-Hungarian production will be directed by Robert Young, who directed 1997's Fierce Creatures, the sequel to A Fish Called Wanda.

Shooting begins next week in Hungary, with further scenes to be filmed in Malta.

そして映画は、イスラエルのCaptain Avner LessがEichmannに行った反対尋問と、1940年代の回想場面で進む。って事ですね?
