A mockery of a true event.
7 March 2001 | by (Lima, Peru) – See all my reviews

This "film" pretends to dramatize the ordeal of the people who were taken hostage by MRTA terrorists in Lima, Peru, in the Residence of the Ambassador of Japan. Instead, we get a story which has Japanese officials playing mariachi music, terrorists and hostages dancing the tango, and the terrorist leader going to bed with the Dutch Ambassador. As a person who lived not 10 blocks away from what really happened, this movie is simply an insult to all involved.
