A sprawling, visually ravishing, and comprehensive masterpiece.
Rating based upon 2hr 45min version available on Netflix - very good but the narrative jumps are a negative. I imagine the entire series wouldn't have this problem.
This is a 5.5 hour film split into 3 parts which you will want to watch consecutively, like you can't put a good book down. I guess you've heard of Carlos the Jackal, and you'll know his face if you've got Black Grape's first album but I bet you don't know much about him. He's like the Venezuelan cousin of Che Guevara who was posted to Europe. The known parts of his story are fully documented here. A fine film or three.
Biographical adoptions of gathered evidence and stories about "Carlos - the jackal", who terrorised Europe for two decades. Great characters, trustworthy and improvised acting which works pretty well. The "movie" is somewhat neutral in its telling. Three episodes of a total 333 minutes, really provides a profound and throughout vision of this infamous character and his co-workers.
"An epic Legend must honored even he is a terrorist"
11 hours of high quality French cinema (I watched it twice over). A tour-de-force continental spy film biopic / Canal TV masterpiece of epic historical proportions.
This film could have been a suspenseful thriller about international terrorism or a psychological portrait of an impassioned and violent supporter of Palestinian causes and it is a little of both but not enough of either to succeed as an engaging film. The second episode includes a lengthy scenario involving the kidnapping of OPEC nation diplomats wherein they are flown around the Mediterranean as negotiations between their captors and various governments continue but before and after that the film doesn't have enough focus to hold the viewers attention. Too many characters come and go with nothing specific to do while Carlos is left as an opaque mystery, his motives and talents not clearly spelled out or brought into relief in a way which is dramatic or interesting.
A fascinating look inside the true story of a celebrity terrorist
engrossing and palatable even for those who hate subtitles.
5.5 hours of this epic bioepic of Carlos the Jackal Ilich Ramirez and 20 years of his notoriety, starting with a small time PLFP sympathizer & amateur terrorist plots to becoming the most hunted by European govts and eventually in part III, a pariah. Just the physical transformation that the lead Edgar Ramirez had to undergo to do this form is amazing!!
