Z

A film by Costa Gavras
Starring Yves Montand, Irene Papas, Jean-Louis Trintignant

An extraordinary thriller! One of the fastest, most exciting melodramas ever made! – Pauline Kael

Acclaimed political director Costa-Gavras crafted Z to mirror the assassination of real-life Greek peace activist Gregorious Lambrakis. The murder of this figure by right wing terrorists became a national scandal in Greece in 1963. Considered by many to be one of the best political thrillers ever made, Z won the Academy Award for best foreign film in 1969 and the Jury Prize that year at Cannes. Brazen in its premiere’s proximity to the actual event that inspired it, Z is a revolt in film form. This suspenseful and mercury quick drama features exciting performances from Yves Montland and Jean-Louis Trintignant.
