One Day in September

Movie Summary

Director:
Kevin Macdonald
Released:
1999
Rating:
R

"One Day in September" is a new kind of thriller - one where real lives are at stake and every event is true. They were billed as the "Olympics of Peace and Joy" but became the Olympics of terror. In 1972, an extreme Palestinian group called Black September held 11 Israeli athletes hostage in the Olympic village in Munich, while the world looked on, incredulous.

Metacritic Score

  • 90

    Los Angeles Times Kenneth Turan

    This utterly compelling behind-the-scenes account of that horrific event unfolds with a potent sense of authority and authenticity.

  • 80

    Variety Dennis Harvey

    Never less than gripping as an account of what happened and what went terribly wrong.

  • 70

    The New York Times

    Given the power of its story, One Day in September seems at times to be pushing too hard.
