What a botched rescue fron beginning to end. The German hosts were truly unprepared for any thing of this kind as well as clueless of its repercussions. I will never forget the scene of the daughter placing sunflowers on her slain father's grave. It is a must see film!

The New York Times
Given the power of its story, One Day in September seems at times to be pushing too hard. Full Review
Carrie Rickey
Philadelphia Inquirer
Macdonald's film brilliantly telescopes the '70s, an era when every physical action had its equal and opposite political reaction. Full Review
Dennis Harvey
Never less than gripping as an account of what happened and what went terribly wrong. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
Straightforward but nonetheless powerful documentary. Full Review
Edward Guthmann
San Francisco Chronicle
Impassioned and well-crafted, One Day in September is also grueling. Full Review
