Arad is already combatting such criticism by showing Munich to deeply interested parties – he hosted a screening for two of the widows of the athletes killed in the events that inspired the film. One of the widows, Ilana Romano, was satisfied with the film, saying she felt it did "no dishonour to the memory of the murdered athletes, nor to the image of the state of Israel," and noting that if Spielberg really wanted to attack the state, he would have depicted Israeli's botched retaliation attempt, which involved the killing of an innocent, uninvolved man in Norway. "Had Spielberg wanted to harm Israel's image, he would have included the Lillehammer affair," Romano told reporters. "Don't let's over-analyse Spielberg's film." Um, sorry Ilana, but over-analysis? Sort of our job.
