Trivia: The Siege


  • Fake Nationality: Maybe subverted into an Actor Allusion, as Samir Nazhde is played by French (you can hear it) of Tunisian descent Sami Bouajila, and even though he is Palestinian, Haddad suggests to deport him to Tunis (although there are Palestinians all over the Arab world now).
  • Life Imitates Art: Three years after the movie came out, the U.S. suffered its worst terrorist attack in its history, with many parallels to the film.
