5.0 out of 5 stars LESSONS IN TERRORISM, 1972 TO PRESENT, 11 Oct 2009
This review is from: One Day In September [DVD] (DVD)
This is the documentary version of the true events concerning the Palestinian terrorists capture of the Israeli athletics squad in the 1972 Munich Olympics. Mark Spitz, the Jewish American won seven gold medals at these Olympics. This is an impressive, Oscar-winning documentary, and reveals the staggeringly amateur handling of the whole event by West German security forces at the time, and the duplicity and cowardice of the later deal to release the three terrorists who were captured that night in the gunfight at the airport. It relies heavily on actual footage of the newsreels of the time and interviews with the relatives of the athletes and the police chiefs of that time, nearly thirty years after the events. The film most directly brought to mind is the fairly recent and excellent thriller 'Munich', which tells the story of the revenge of Mossad on those who were responsible, some while after the event. The truth is always stranger than fiction, and the story is so far from over it brings the news of then and of today together most disturbingly.
