Munich

Trivia: In this film, the word 'Sabra' is used a few times. Sabra means a Jewish person who was actually born in Israel, and not one born in another country who then later moved to the Holy Land.

Allister Cooper, 2011

Factual error: In the final scene with the New York skyline in the background, the new glass/stainless steel Manhattan complex at 731 Lexington Avenue is seen; this building is just being finished now in early '06. The building stands where Alexander's dept store once was. (On a related note, it is a nice touch on Spielberg's part to overlay the Twin Towers onto the skyline in that same scene.)

More quotes from Munich

Question: Why would Ephrain not break bread with Avnar at the end of the film?

Answer: Avner had refused Ephraim's request that he return to Israel and Mossad. When Avner invited Ephraim to dinner to break bread, it was a symbolic gesture to make peace between them. Ephraim's refusal indicates they will never reconcile their differences.
