From acclaimed director Werner Herzog, and based on a true story, Invincible is an extraordinary tale of a simple Jewish man (Tim Roth) who rises from a life of obscurity to defend his heritage. With Hitler on the brink of power and the world on the road to war, one hero will journey from a humble village in Poland to the giddy excesses of 1930s Berlin, risking everything in order to fight for his people.

Despite their antagonistic role in the social fabric of the story, this isn't a story about Nazi's. They also are ironically not the undoing of a good man, so much as his own strong character, but with a dated ignorance of simple septicemia. If there's a particularly tragic thread throughout the story, it's that Hanussen is correct about the rise of Nazi power, but he's so steeped in fraudulence that even Zishe can't take him seriously until Hitler murders him.
All around, performances are outstanding.
I originally saw this movie when it came out and thought it fascinating. I came upon it again and thought my friends would enjoy it. The movie engendered discussion and, after watching, we spent time on the characters (who were real people) and the personalities of the Third Reich.
The film was slow in places. Tim Roth was perfect, as always.
You do get a good insight into the period of 1930s Nazi Berlin, and I found that fascinating. It is well worth the money!
