Hannah Arendt by Margarethe von Trotta ( Visual )
4 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A brilliant biopic of the influential German-Jewish philosopher and political theorist. Arendt's reporting on the 1961 trial of ex-Nazi Adolf Eichmann in The New Yorker, controversial both for her portrayal of Eichmann and the Jewish councils, introduced her now-famous concept of the 'Banality of Evil.' Using footage from the actual Eichmann trial and weaving a narrative that spans three countries, von Trotta beautifully turns the often invisible passion for thought into dramatic cinema

Uniform justice. Brunetti is deeply affected by the death of a cadet at Venice's exclusive San Martino Military Academy and has trouble believing such a bright and vigorous young man could take his own life.
