Note
  • Opera, based on the hijacking by Palestinian terrorists of the Mediterranean cruise ship Achille Lauro
  • Special features: filming "The death of Klinghoffer"; director's commentary
  • "Award-winning British film-maker Penny Woolcock, working with the composer, has ingeniously reworked the original, using techniques afforded by film to imbue the narrative with realism. Whilst the main action is shot on location in the Mediterranean, actual and recreated archive footage tells the broader story of the characters before and after the hijacking"--Container
