Storyline

Ilich Ramirez Sanchez, aka 'Carlos,' is a Venezuelan-born Marxist revolutionary who aligns himself with the Palestinian cause and becomes the world's most notorious terrorist. He leads assaults on the meeting of OPEC ministers, taking them hostage and flying them from country to country seeking asylum, one of the most daring acts of terrorism in history. From his earliest days as an apprentice in the revolutionary movement to his subsequent downfall, Carlos becomes a figure of legend. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Trivia

The original plan was for the film to focus on the terrorist's capture in Sudan in 1994 and run for 90 minutes. However, as director Olivier Assayas started conducting research into his subject, he realized that there was a much bigger story to tell. See more »

Goofs

When the terrorists take the tram in Vienna to get to the OPEC conference, the tram can be seen in three scenes, and every time it is a different tram line: The first tram's final destination is "Nussdorf", the second tram is line "D" and the third is a tram on "Extra Tour". See more »

Quotes

Amie de Carlos: You skipped the demonstration against Pinochet's coup.
Ilich Ramírez Sánchez, aka 'Carlos': They bore me shitless and serve no purpose. Demonstrations never change a thing.
Amie de Carlos: Chileans need to know we're behind them.
Ilich Ramírez Sánchez, aka 'Carlos': The Chilean generals and the CIA don't care. Where did picketing the coup in Uruguay get us? They're still killing the Tupamaros. It's war. It can't be won by picketing.
Amie de Carlos: How then?
Ilich Ramírez Sánchez, aka 'Carlos': There are other methods. Words get us nowhere. It's time for action.
Amie de Carlos: What kind of action?
Ilich Ramírez Sánchez, aka 'Carlos': We have to commit.
Amie de Carlos: Commit to what?
Ilich Ramírez Sánchez, aka 'Carlos': To the revolution...

Edgar Ramirez
5 June 2011 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Much will be said about this tour de force. A compilation of unbelievable acts of heroic madness. A caption at the beginning of he film warn us that "it should be treated as a work of fiction" Well, thank you very much. What makes this extraordinary achievement, truly extraordinary is Edgar Ramirez. A monumental performance that allows us to make sense of the man. Revolution is in his DNA but so fragile. His ego makes him corruptible and his nature swings between the extremes of an idealist and a sociopath. I was riveted and appalled. I had DVR all three episodes to watch at my leisure but once I started I couldn't stop watching. So I saw the whole thing in one sitting and it went fast very fast. That in itself is extraordinary. So, not to be missed.
