Ilich Ramírez Sánchez aka Carlos the Jackal, Venezuelan (but educated
in communist USSR), was the most notorious terrorist in Europe and some
Africa and Middle East countries.
Affiliated with the Palestinian / anti-Zionism cause and justice and
equality for the people; he publicly proclaim some of Ernesto "CHE"
Guevara's socialist concepts; however comparing these two different
characters will be a huge mistake. While the later was driven by ideals
and passion; Carlos was mostly moved by his egomaniacal needs of power,
notoriety and money.
Olivier Assasyas did a deep historical analysis of Carlos' trajectory
during a period of about 20 years. In order to produce a continuity he
tied real events from the seventies mid nineties (sme using reel
footage others dramatized) with fictional "what if" situations (showing
interactions and negotiations with different people and powers).
Whatever really happened in those meetings can only be guessed based in
subsequent events. The final product is almost perfect. Carlos emerges
as a very complex character. He was mercenary, ambitious and power
hungry person; very cold but a very smart. He is never shown as a
coward but he was not always on the front line either. When he is asked
to be killed for "the cause", he states "I am a soldier not a martyr"
he states when he is asked to be killed by "the cause". He used people
(particularly women) that were easily seduced by his discourse (it
seems his sexual life was really over the top) for minor actions but he
was there in the most important ones like the OPEC kidnapping. Edgar
Ramirez is outstanding as the main character; speaking several
languages with ease and convincing in all of them. His charisma stays
even when he is doing hideous statements or acts or beating a woman.
This movie could not exist without him.
However, this five and a half hours TV mini-series (it can also be
viewed in cinemas as three hours movie) is not really a Carlos' biopic
but a serious essay about modern terrorism. Carlos was (and he knew
that) just a famous puppet. He was an instrument until the end of Cold
War; then was kept "protected" by different countries until his
knowledge was outdated. After that he was betrayed by his contractors
and imprisoned by the French government (he was only judged by the
killing of two police officers and is currently serving life prison).
USA FCC censorship will never allow this movie to be shown in public TV
as it was in Europe (there is nudity and swearing all over). It is
really a pity because young people should see this to understand the
difference between fight and manipulation.
