What are people saying?

  • Eriugena82's rating of the film The Moro Affair

    Pretty interesting political film, though despite the subject there isn't much tension. Of course the events it depicts would have been very well known, but this lends everything a certain fatalism. The crux of the film is therefore what happens in between the two known events of Moro's kidnapping and his murder, an investigation of ideology vs humanity between political enemies, between captor and captive.
