西蒙·曼恩,政变!剧情介绍

西蒙·曼恩,政变!是一部剧情片,How many men do you need to stage a coup and take over an African country? To Simon Mann, old Etonian, ex-Scots Guardsman and ex-SAS, it seemed simple enough. First take 70 mercenaries from South Africa, pick up arms in Zimbabwe, bring a possible president out of exile in Spain and fly to Equatorial Guinea where abundant oil and great wealth awaits. Everyone agrees that the current ruler is a nasty piece of work, and regime change is all the rage. How could it go wrong? This TV drama contains strong language. Writing credits: John Fortune Runtime: 90 min Color: Color Written by leading satirist John Fortune, Coup! is a tale of audacity, incompetence and betrayal starring Jared Harris and Robert Bathurst. It follows upper-class Brit Simon Mann (Harris) through his failed attempt to overthrow the Equatorial Guinea government. This one-off film is a shocking - and sometimes hilarious - insight into the true story of how Simon Mann found himself betrayed, arrested and confined to an African jail following his involvement in the 2004 coup. It charts the fortunes of Simon, Nick Du Toit, and their hand-picked crew of mercenaries through the disastrous events which led to their downfall. Coup! explains why Mark Thatcher (Bathurst), son of the former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, became involved and arrested. It deals with greed, money, and how countries rich in oil will always become the centre of the world's attention - whether wanted or not. It exposes the arrogance of well-connected old Etonians like Simon Mann, founder of mercenary firm Executive Outcomes. What happened in the coup? In March 2004, Zimbabwean authorities impounded a plane with 64 mercenaries on board. A few days later, fifteen more mercenaries, led by South African Nick Du Toit were arrested in Equatorial Guinea and charged with an attempted coup. A confession by Nick Du Toit, later retracted, accused Simon Mann of being the leader of a plot to remove Equatorial Guinea's President Obiang Nguema, who has ruled the country since seizing power in 1979. Exiled opponent Severo Moto was to replace him as head of the oil-rich country. Mann denied involvement. A letter sent by Mann asking his friends for help mentioned Mark Thatcher's name, although Sir Mark denied knowledge of the coup. He did later plead guilty to failing to ensure that money he invested wasn't used for such purposes. Currently, Mann is serving a four-year jail sentence in Zimbabwe,

Dramatisation of the abortive real-life attempt by Simon Mann to organise a coup to take over Equatorial Guinea in 2004. The case achieved notoriety because one of the innocent financial backers of the project was Sir Mark Thatcher, son of British ex-PM 'Margaret Thatcher'.
