Goofs

During the undated second contact with "Alex", the Mossad agent, information about the whereabouts of Ali Hassan Salameh, wanted for the attacks at the Munich Olympics, is presented hidden inside a newspaper dated May 28th, 1971. The Munich massacre took place in September 1972. Since clearly the meeting took place between 1972 and 1973 (after the Olympic Games and before the Yom Kippur war), it makes no sense to use a newspaper from 1971. See more »

Great story, well told...ignore the bad reviews with an agenda!
16 September 2018 | by pellenbogenSee all my reviews

This is really an excellent film with none of the gratuitous violence that is typical of too many espionage thrillers. This is a true, old fashion 1970s spy story during an extraordinary period of history. I was totally unaware of this story before I saw this film. It's well acted and not over produced, and unless your an Arabic speaker it doesn't matter how authentic the idioms are.
