Movie Info

The Last King of Scotland director Kevin Macdonald offers an alternate history of a post-war world where fascist ideology has prevailed by using the murderous exploits of Gestapo commander Klaus Barbie to explore the relationship that Western powers had with authoritarian governments in this documentary, which aims to encourage viewers to view the world as it is today in a whole new light. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi


Critic Reviews for My Enemy's Enemy

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1)

The sad story of the United States' involvement in delaying the prosecution of war criminal Klaus Barbie, a.k.a. the Butcher of Lyon, for three decades is succinctly and painfully recalled in My Enemy's Enemy.

Angry finger-pointing examination of how a Nazi war criminal influenced U.S. foreign policy for 40 years. . . Revealing look at torture history is even more relevant today.

The "line of character" considered by the film is less Klaus Barbie's than the ideology and politics that shape Western activities, both official and covert, postwar and after.
