Rating:
R
Boys from Brazil is the 1978 sci-fi thriller based on the novel by Ira Levin (Rosemary's Baby) and directed by Franklin J. Schaffner (Planet of the Apes, Patton). Josef Mengele (Gregory Peck) the evil Nazi doctor clones boys to be new manifestations of Adolf Hitler so that the Third Reich can arise throughout the Western World. Middle-aged, authoritarian men seeking children get clones of the Antichrist. Mengele watches the development of the boys from afar and notices with pride that they develop much like his hero. As they reach their teens, Mengele arranges the deaths of the adoptive fathers so that the boy can have an important commonality with the Fuehrer: the loss of a father at the appropriate age. An aging Jew, Ezra Lieberman (Laurence Olivier) discovers a plot at which he first scoffs -- before he realizes that it is all too real -- and attempts to thwart the plot by preventing the murder of the fathers. In the most important instance, he and Mengele meet one of the young Hitlers as his father is about to be offed.moreless
