Plot Summary: From the acclaimed director of "Irma Vep" and "Summer Hours," Olivier Assayas, comes an explosive new work of astonishing scope; an epic portrayal of the notorious revolutionary and terrorist, Carlos (played by Edgar Ramirez in the breakthrough performance of the year). A sensational hit of the Cannes and Telluride Film Festivals, "Carlos" is a exciting, sexy, globe-spanning ride through the life of one of the most enigmatic, violent and fascinating personas of the 20th century. Ilich Ramirez Sanchez, for two decades, was one of the most wanted terrorists on the planet. Between 1974 and 1994, he lived several lives under various pseudonyms, weaving his way through the complexities of international politics of the period. Known to the world as Carlos the Jackal, his resume of violent revolutionary acts led to notoriety of the most extreme kind.
