KIM JONG-IL: THE FORBIDDEN BIOGRAPHY
A hazardous handover
Kim-Jong Il was the most secretive political leader on earth. A grotesque dictator with a finger on the nuclear trigger.
Starting from a personality profile of this schizophrenic dictator through exclusive testimonies, this film offers a geopolitical analysis of the Korean peninsula based on first hand Russian, Chinese and Korean archive footage. Breaking away from the formulaic anathemas on the evilness of Kim-Jong Il, this film casts a striking light on a totalitarian dictatorship which gave birth to the first communist dynasty in History.
A must needed portrait of a leader whose nuclear gambit has been taken over by his equally enigmatic son Kim Jong Un.
