Here's the official US trailer for Lars Kraume's The People vs. Fritz Bauer, in high def from Apple:
Germany, 1957. Attorney General Fritz Bauer (Klaußner) receives crucial evidence on the whereabouts of SS-Obersturmbannführer Adolf Eichmann. The lieutenant colonel, responsible for the mass deportation of the Jews, is allegedly hiding in Buenos Aires. Bauer, himself Jewish, has been trying to take crimes from the Third Reich to court ever since his return from Danish exile, but with no success so far due to the fierce German determination to repress its sinister past. Because of his distrust in the German justice system, Fritz Bauer contacts the Israeli secret service Mossad, and, by doing so, commits treason. Bauer is not seeking revenge for the Holocaust—he is concerned with the German future. The People vs. Fritz Bauer is directed by filmmaker Lars Kraume, of My Sisters and The Coming Days previously. The film premiered at Locarno & TIFF last year. Cohen Media Group will release this in theaters starting August 19th this fall.

Yes, he was definitely brave. And right about the Nazis in many state services after WWII. The whole thing changed for better, as far as I know, during 1960s. It's a shame that son of J. Mengele could go to South America and spend time with his father and nobody did nothing about it. More people like F. Bauer would do better ... So, I know the story but I'm not sure should I see it. But it's quite interesting that European film versions of WWII and stories after it don't look so spectacular as American ones. It must be the technology, right?
