Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: One Day In September [VHS] (VHS Tape)
I don't think anyone could watch this film and not be moved . .to anger as well as tears. The hopeless (as we know now) situation of the Israeli hostages is interspersed with interviews with many of the people involved that day, and with coverage of the Olympic events themselves. Though we know how it's going to end, the almost unbearable tension is palpable.
This video is rated 12 and over. Would I be happy for a 12-year-old to see close-up photographs of the dead hostages ? Depends on the 12-year-old, I think.
The apparent lack of remorse in the only surviving terrorist remains the most chilling aspect of this film, whilst the daughter placing sunflowers on the grave of the father she cannot remember remains the most poignant.
