  • The actual encounters with the former terrorists who called themselves Antonio and Camilla prove rather anti‑climactic.

  • My Kidnapper - charged, complex and always compelling - revisits the ruins and speaks to the ghosts.

  • An emotion-charged documentary...

  • While this is undoubtedly a compelling story, it's also deeply and disconcertingly personal.

  • My Kidnapper is a documentary made with a few ideas and a few pennies. But its privileged viewpoint is spellbinding, just like its lush mountaintop views of Colombian jungle.

  • The horrendous experiences of the victims and the humble statements of the perpetrators speak for themselves, but Henderson's closeness to his subject (not to mention an emotionally manipulative Radiohead soundtrack) compromises the journalistic analysis.
