Trivia

The meaning of the film's "Rosebud" title in the movie is that it refers to the name of a French industrialist Mediterranean luxury yacht. Prior to this film, "Rosebud" had been well-known as the name of the sledge in Orson Welles's classic Citizen Kane (1941). A minor reference to this is made early in the movie but other than this the movie has nothing to do with the Welles film. See more »

Quotes

Larry Martin: The President is sitting all alone in his little oval office, trying to decide which way to go. If he allows the film to be shown, he loses the Jewish vote. If he forbids it, he loses every mother in the country. The arithmetic is on your side. Mothers are in the majority.

Good grasp of politics
31 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK so the plot moved a bit slowly, and the dialog was stiff - but one thing stands out. This thing reeks of history. It is a terrorist film decades before its time. It features Palestinian commando's (headed by Arafat, who is mentioned by name)it mentions the Black September group by name. In one scene a top Palestinian (couldn't tell if it was supposed to be Arafat or not) explains the meaning of Jihad or holy war.

Kinda makes one wonder if anyone in our State Department ever saw this movie? I give it a better than average rating simply because its got the historical context correct - - and was decades ahead of its time.
