Carlos the Jackal complains over 'inaccuracies' in film biopic





Carlos the Jackal, the former Venezuelan revolutionary who is serving a life sentence in a French jail, has complained that the film of his life is riddled with "historial inaccuracies"

Carlos the Jackal - whose real name is Ilich Ramirez Sanchez -made a failed legal bid to stop the Cannes launch of the five-and-a-hour film by French director Oliver Assayas.

Shot over seven months in Lebanon, Britain, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria and Hungary, it was made on a 14-million-euro budget and is screening on French television this week.
