This Swedish feature film chronicles the last days of the war in Budapest. The Soviet noose is tightening around the city, yet the unrelenting mass murder of Jews continues. Raoul Wallenberg, an attache to the Swedish Embassy, was sent at the initiative of Swedish Jewish businessmen on a rescue mission of Hungarian Jews. He distributed Swedish papers ("Wallenberg passports"), protected Jews in "Wallenberg houses," internationalized the ghetto to give the 33,000 Jews within it more protections, and saved thousands of Jews from deportation. On January 17, 1945, Wallenberg was taken to Moscow as a Soviet prisoner. He was never released, and his fate has remained a mystery.

A triumph of film making that one rarely sees. Whether he saved 60,000 Budapest Jews or 100,000 as other films state, he is a man to be admired and honored. "Good Evening Mr. Wallenberg" is the only film worthy of such a great man. History should never forget the name of Raoul Wallenberg and this film illustrates why!
