IMITATION OF LIFE in OPERATION FINALE!

I'm re-watching OPERATION FINALE (about the kidnapping of Adolph Eichmann in Argentina), which has a commentary track, which is so wonderful in a good modern film because so many don't, and the film is quite complex, all filmed on location in Buenos Aires, a great reason for seeing it, anyway.
 
But---BEST OF ALL----the Director (Chris Weitz) is the son of Susan Kohner (who played the angry, tragic daughter in IMITATION OF LIFE, 1959!!!!!!)
Not only that, they show people in the movie house in Buenos Aires watching the movie, and Susan Kohner's scene where Troy Donahue beats her up!
He gets to insert his mother's most famous scene into his own movie---really cool.
Later, 2 characters in the film "sort of" replay the incident.
