Z (1969)Get Rating Widget!

Overall Rating: 3.73 based on 11 ratings
Amazon.com's review of "Z": Costa-Gavras's Z, winner of the 1970 Academy Award for Best Foreign Film, is a classic political thriller, combining intrigue with raw emotional power. The story turns on the investigation of the assassination of a left-wing Greek politician (Yves Montand), and his government's attempts to cover up the murky circumstances. Montand receives death threats as he prepares to give a speech condemning the government, and is then run down in front of numerous witnesses. Jean-Louis Trintignant (The Conformist) plays the judge assigned to the investigation, who gradually discovers how far the state will go to rid itself of political opposition. As he is warned off the case by his superiors, the judge becomes even more determined to discover the truth, no matter where it might lead. Costa-Gavras (Missing, Mad City) is in familiar territory here, but no one handles this type of material better. --Robert Lane (Add picture)

This political thriller and academy award winner (best foreign film) crackles with energy.

I joined a foreign film society about 35 years ago. We brought in a stable of foreign fare. "Z" was one of them. It stunk and hasn't been sweetened since!

An above average Greek entry about political intrigue and assasination. The cast is strong and the film is well made, but it has not aged well.
