Storyline

Yaron Svoray is a Jewish freelance reporter who goes to Germany to write an article about neonazism. While visiting a Turkish refugee camp a gang of skinheads attack. When the police arrive, he is mistakenly arrested which gives the skinheads the impression that he is a sympathiser for the Nazi cause. Yaron sees the opportunity and slowly infiltrates the group. He is appalled and disgusted by what he sees, but he's determined to dig deeper. Yaron discovers that the Nazism runs deeper and is more powerful than he ever could have imagined.

A Scary Movie About Intolerance and Racism
22 February 2004 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Yaron (Oliver Platt) is a Jew journalist assigned for a matter about Neo-Nazis in German. He poses of Neo-Nazi and the skinheads believe he is the representative of a wealthy American, who wants to sponsor a German Neo-Nazis groups.

This film is very scary, since it is based on a true story. It is almost unthinkable that, in 2004, there are persons having such a feeling of rage in their hearts against other human beings, just because of their religions or ethnicity. Oliver Platt has a great performance as a brave and audacious man. "The Infiltrator" is a very disgusting, but also a very important and highly recommended film about intolerance and racism. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): 'Infiltrator – Em Busca da Verdade' ('Infiltrator – Looking For the Truth')
