Set immediately after the murder of nine Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics (an event thats brutally re-enacted), the film is supposedly a fictionalised account based on true events of what happened next. Namely, the Israelis ordering together a secret team--led by Eric Banas Avner--to take out those they considered responsible.
Only its not that easy. It doesnt take long for the film to start blurring the moral debate. Is what Avner and his team are doing that different from the original assassins? Can he reconcile the brutality of his actions? And what happens when the programme of retaliation doesnt go quite to plan?
By turns, Munich is a brutal, gripping and important film. Its not always easy to penetrate, and it really demands some good old-fashioned concentration to fully appreciate it. Yet its superb filmmaking, and an engrossing piece of cinema. Oscar may have snubbed it, but youd be wise not to make the same mistake.--Jon Foster
