  • Munich is a 2005 drama film based on Operation Wrath of God, the Israeli government's secret retaliation against the Palestine Liberation Organization after the Munich massacre at the 1972 Summer Olympics. The film was produced and directed by Steven Spielberg and written by Tony Kushner and Eric Roth. Based on the book Vengeance: The True Story of an Israeli Counter-Terrorist Team about Yuval Aviv, who states he was a Mossad agent, Munich follows a squad of assassins as they track down and kill alleged members of the group Black September, which kidnapped and murdered eleven Israeli athletes. Shot in Malta, Budapest, Fürstenfeldbruck Air Base, Paris, and New York, Munich was a critical success but is also one of Spielberg's lowest-grossing films. It garnered positive reviews and five Academy Awards nominations: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Film Editing and Best Original Score. Its worldwide box office gross was $130,358,911.
