Technology And " Boys From Brazil"

844 words - 3 pages

The film 'The Boys From Brazil' shows the genetic experiment performed by a highly decorated Nazi doctor, and the effort made by a Jewish investigator to stop him. The doctor cloned the genes of famous Nazi leader Adolf Hitler, and genetically implanted them into the egg of a woman in order to create another Hitler. With such an unlikely main action, ideas may seem unimportant, but one can nevertheless find a number of ideas in the film. One of the film's major ideas is that evil will live forever. This idea is shown in the careful planning of the doctor, the lengths the Nazis go to in order to fulfill their plan, and the results of the human experiment.The doctor's experiment involved years of careful planning in order to create an environment similar to Hitler's. The doctor devoted his entire life to his research, which dated back to the time of the Nazi camps. His main goal was to clone the genes of Hitler and implant them in newborns.

Hitler believed that a perfect human race consisted of humans with blonde hair and blue eyes. Since the doctor believed in the ideas of Hitler, he genetically engineered prisoners to have these qualities, along with the people that worked at the doctor's home. In order for the children to grow up looking, thinking, and acting like Hitler, the doctor's planning necessitated precise planning. Along with the help of a nurse, he reviewed the charts of thousands of parents wishing to adopt a child in order to find family conditions that were similar to those of Hitler. All of this precise planning was the first step in the doctor's goal of creating another Hitler.The doctor cared too much about his experiment and the Nazi cause to have someone or something ruin it. For example, when he saw one of his closest Nazi aids at the party instead of on his planned mission, the doctor attacked him, claiming that he was a traitor to his cause. The doctor was so passionate about his experiment that he would kill one of his closest aides to see his experiment completed. Once the doctor found out that a Jewish investigator was interfering, he set out on a private mission to...
