Editing iPhone 5 MOV file rotation

I want to change metadata describing video rotation in MOV file recorded by iPhone 5 from "90" to "0".

I unsuccessfully tried
Code:
exiftool.exe -n -v2 -Rotation=0 file.MOV
with following result:

Code:
Writing PhotoMechanic:Rotation if tag exists
Writing FotoStation:Rotation if tag exists
Writing MIE-Orient:Rotation
Writing CanonVRD:Rotation if tag exists
Writing CanonRaw:Rotation if tag exists
Writing Canon:Rotation if tag exists
Writing Pentax:Rotation if tag exists
Writing Sony:Rotation if tag exists
Writing NikonCapture:Rotation if tag exists
Writing Canon:Rotation if tag exists
Writing Minolta:Rotation if tag exists
Writing Sony:Rotation if tag exists
Writing Panasonic:Rotation if tag exists
Writing Minolta:Rotation if tag exists
Writing Sony:Rotation if tag exists
Writing Nikon:Rotation if tag exists
Writing Minolta:Rotation if tag exists
Writing Minolta:Rotation if tag exists
Writing Minolta:Rotation if tag exists
======== file.MOV
Rewriting file.MOV...
  FileType = MOV
  MIMEType = video/quicktime
  Editing tags in: CanonVRD FotoStation MIE-Orient MakerNotes PhotoMechanic
  Creating tags in: MIE-Orient

Nothing changed in file.MOV
    0 image files updated
    1 image files unchanged
Rotation didn't change (file is not modificated, exiftool still display "Rotation : 90" and iPhone is still rotating video).

Code:
exiftool.exe -Rotation= file.MOV
is also unsuccessful:

Code:
Warning: Can't delete Permanent tag Minolta:Rotation
    0 image files updated
    1 image files unchanged
EDIT1: AFAIK this task can't be done by exiftool. Rotation is Composite tag, which can not be edited and is based on tags which also can not be edited. Maybe somebody have different solution (based on different tools?)?
