"Based on the explosive novel by Vassilis Vassilikos, COSTA-GAVRAS’ Academy award winning masterpiece presents a controversial yet fictionalized account of the events surrounding the assassination of democratic Greek politician Gregoris Lambrakis in 1963. When a liberal politician is murdered during a peace demonstration, certain high-powered right wing figures make a concerted effort to not only conceal their involvement but ultimately cover up the murder in a cunning conspiracy. Jean-Louis Trintignant stars as the investigating magistrate who will stop at nothing to uncover the truth, indict the assassins and ultimately deliver justice and restore hope to the people. Also featuring Yves Montand and Irene Papas, Z is a landmark film, notorious for its dark satirical view of Greek politics, and capturing the sensitivity and outrage that rocked the status quo. Never before has a film created such a political stir" --Container.
