Should this be shown? Two French films on terror
by Jochen Kürten
Fictional depictions of terrorism are sometimes a little too close to reality. After the horrific attack in Nice, two films, "Bastille Day" and "Made in France," fuel the debate on the media's role in glorifying terror.
It spookily anticipated what just happened in France.
In the thriller "Bastille Day," a bomb explodes in Paris. Several people are killed. It happens on July 13, the day before the French national holiday. Paris turns into a security fortress. Another attack is planned for July 14 - and it has to be stopped. This is the dramatic plot of the French-British-American action film "Bastille Day," which has played in theaters in different European countries since April.
