"...goes deep... intimate... well told... compellingly repellent..."
The New York Times.
Revealing the private world of Saddam Hussein and his inner circle, this gripping 4-part miniseries charts the rise and fall of one of the most significant political figures in recent history. Over the course of 27 years, Saddam (Igal Naor) rose from peasant origins to the highest office in Iraq, consolidating his power by executing those who posed real or imagined threats, and surrounding himself with family members, ultimately his notorious sons Uday and Qusay. In the end, House of Saddam reveals its title character as a man of undeniable vision ultimately brought down by his own flaws - especially an unquenchable thirst for power, attained at all costs, including the sacrifice of those who were closest to him. -- (C) HBO Studios, 2008, UK/USA.
