Based on a true story

A true story this American TV movie, speaking of the dictatorship in Argentina during the late seventies. A Jewish journalist was adducted by the regime police, tortured, taken prisoner and accused of treason against the state. I did not know about this story. And, as far as I know, that's one of the rare films made by the Americans about Argentina's dictators. Most features made about it remain from Argentine. Maybe is was made because of the antisemitic purposes of the leaders of the dictatorship, pointed out in this movie. Roy Scheider is convincing at the most and the torture sequences unbearable, filmed in a very realistic way.

Pure material for a TV movie. This kind of industry was always closest to reality than the big screen films.
