As a politically interested teenager in the late 60's and early 70's it was impossible not to seriously concern themselves with the european terrorism of the birth and emergence. I would think that I've seen a hundred feature films and documentaries (if not a thousand) about how parts of the european left eventually formed in, for example, the German Red army fraction, the Italian Red brigades, belgian Action direkte, Danish Blekingegadebanden (the story is narrated – but not good enough and a lot...). The IRA, ETA, PFLP, japanese Red army fraction.
I have tried to read everything on the subject, been able to devote hours to ösregnslånga interviews with Italian brigadister, made in the 90s and later, from prison, in the newly-acquired freedom, in Italian (without barely knowing a word itself) – I just can't drop it, so want to understand what it was that happened.
Sophie Bonnet met the venezuelan terrorist Ilich Ramírez Sánchez once a month in his French prison, 12 times a year for four years, and I am ridiculously disappointed afterwards. ”But when does the actual documentary...?”. It is, as you probably already understood about Carlos, the Jackal.
”In the head of the Jackal” is the name of the movie (SVT Play). I hope there are many out there who can find more new than I did. As an introductory course in the subject, it can hopefully work for the curious the generations that come afterwards, otherwise the run Sophie Bonnet just right into Schakalenmyten just like all the other made in the now almost fifty years.
In the end, the jumps she still, over the dreary political reality and grottar rather than down it, tickling with his double life as a terrorist, playboy, gangster, psychopath – killer plain and simple.
nice production, the interviews with Carlos in the prison are animated and dramatized but the annoying thin. You see how Sophie Bonnet type in the block by block so that the pen glows, in the documentary she says herself that Carlos told me/confessed to everything during these meetings, we are viewing very little. It ends yet again in a sort of ”fascination” Carlos, överklasskillen from Caracas, which became the world's most feared and wanted frilansterrorist.
The most exciting sequence in the film is a short interview with the German terrorist Hans-Joachim Klein, the associated RZ (Revolutionäre Zellen), which is Carlos crony at the OPEC drama in Vienna in 1975, when the whole mötestoppen held hostage. Klein pushed and damaged already at the attack, is arrested, is released in exchange for hostages, living revolutionary in the lap of luxury a few years with Carlos, jumps off and succeed, then keep away until 1998, when he voluntarily reports to the police. Dutchman Alexander Oye already did the 2005 film of Hans-Joachim Klein, My life as a terrorist” – may as well content myself with the tip.
categories, right now, the Swedish dockserien on SVT Play, ”Operation Klotty”. Have not seen anything more fun, more original and at the same time troubled, elusive. Petter Lennstrand and Björn Carlberg on a violently twisted överklassparodi and I hesitate not to say that they definitely have something true genius of themselves and their productions (you remember, Allram Eest, ”the top people”, Kjell...?!). It is world-class, straight off. The best Swedish film dialog with the ages, and magical, creative acting.
julteve-the weekend has exploded in the listings and on streaming services. Don't miss the amazing French political thriller/drama ”Baron Noir” on HBO. The first section is a pure pleasure.
