Robustly entertaining and bracingly sinister, The Boys from Brazil stars Gregory Peck as the infamous Dr Josef Mengele, the former Nazi chief who intends to resurrect the Führer and create a Fourth Reich through genetic experiments that commence with the assassination of some 94 fathers. Elderly Nazi hunter Ezra Lieberman (Laurence Olivier, in an Oscar-nominated performance) is tipped to the plot, but his efforts to expose Peck (fiendishly cast against type) are thwarted by a set of menacing triplets played by Jeremy Black.
Back in 1978, The Boys from Brazil (adapted from Ira Levin's novel) was an incalculably tense, straight-faced entertainment whose lack of irony allowed the viewer to indulge the film's outrageous premise without moral offence. But in view of the scientific advancements made since the release of the film, it's now a cautionary tale, and all the more compelling for being so. Jerry Goldsmith's richly conceived, Oscar-nominated score--replete with echoes of Mahler and Strauss--reinforces this impression.--Kevin Mulhall --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

Movie goes in three content (Europe, South America and USA) and there is no dissapointing scenes, story goes on and keep you up the seat.
Blu- Ray is very good even in a big screen; Picture is sharp and colours are in balance. It's so sorry, that they dont do this kind of intellicente movies anymore- everything is action and violance "go,go,go- fuckking ushole" Boys from Brazil does`nt need any line of this kind....
