Storyline

1981: Marita Lorenz checks into an Havana hotel and, in a flashback, remembers 22 years' before. At 19, visiting Cuba from New York, she comes to the attention of Fidel Castro, the country's rebel president. He invites her to be his secretary and to be part of the making of the new Cuba. She accepts, but soon learns he already has a capable secretary; Marita's duties lie elsewhere. She becomes pregnant. She's also come to the attention of the FBI and the CIA, so when she wakes up in a US hospital after what may have been a botched abortion against her will in Cuba, her government presses her into service as an assassin: her job, to go back to Cuba and kill her former lover.

Not bad for a TV movie
12 October 1999 | by See all my reviews

Often times, TV movies come across as watered-down life. So I was very pleasantly surprised at some of the intensity of "My Little Assassin." Anwar is stunning both as a teen and as her aged self later. The real star, however, was Joe Mantegne as Fidel Castro. For a recognizable character actor, his suspension of disbelief was very good. The movie was predictable a lot of the time, and some of the writing was too cut and dry, but overall the movie was enjoyable.
