A pulse-pounding political thriller, Greek expatriate director Costa-Gavras's Z was one of the cinematic sensations of the late sixties, and remains among the most vital dispatches from that hallowed era of filmmaking. This Academy Award winner-loosely based on the 1963 assassination of Greek left-wing activist Gregoris Lambrakis-stars Yves Montand as a prominent politician and doctor whose public murder amid a violent demonstration is covered up by military and government officials
Jean-Louis Trintignant is the tenacious magistrate who's determined not to let them get away with it. Featuring kinetic, rhythmic editing, Raoul Coutard's expressive vérité photography, and Mikis Theodorakis's unforgettable, propulsive score, Z is a technically audacious and emotionally gripping masterpiece.

Fabulous Oscar winning French film
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 10/11/2009 19:42:34
I remember seeing this film when it first came out in the late 60's. The audience where mainly late teens & early twenties and the most remarkable thing happened at the end when everyone got up and clapped. The story is based on when the Colonels took over the government and crushed everything and one who opposed them. As I was young and had long hair I remember stories of hippies passing through Greece and having their haircut. It is a wonderfully made film in every way and won an Oscar for the best foreign film. It is strange therefore that I had to buy it from America as it is not available over here on Region 2. Fortunately I have a multi regional DVD player. I would certainly recommend it to anyone who likes a great edge of your seat film.
