      I found “The Couple” to be an engaging, entertaining movie. The October 2006 movie is just the latest in what has almost become a genre in filmmaking: the efforts to prevent Jews from going to a concentration camp and to rescue them from Nazi Germany.

      I like the story of “The Couple.” It features Martin


      Landau as Joseph Krauzenberg, a favorite of mine since his early “Mission Impossible” TV series in the 1960s with his lovely wife Barbara Bain.

      I liked the interplay between Reichsfuhrer Heinrich Himmler and Adolph Eichmann (still a major). It was interesting to see them match their

      power against each other. Interestingly, in this movie, Eichmann was the more laudable character. Himmler engaged in his own self-interest. That’s not to say of course that either were sympathetic characters.

      I think this is a good movie. I recommend it for someone in a serious mood with a score of 93% or an A.
