    Turning the events preceding the 1960s military junta in Greece into a kinetic political thriller, Costa-Gavras' Z (1969) is a cinematically compelling argument against state repression. In a story based on the assassination of pacifist Gregoris Lambrakis, Greek expatriate Costa-Gavras' French New Wave techniques create visual energy and documentary immediacy while humanizing the Lambrakis analogue (Yves Montand) and his wife (Irene Papas).

    Costa Gavras : Konstantínos Gavrás (en grec Κωνσταντίνος Γαβράς), dit Costa-Gavras (Κώστας Γαβράς), est un réalisateur de cinéma franco-grec et né à Loutra-Iraias (Arcadie) le 12 février 1933. Chacun de ses films est pour lui l'occasion de témoigner de son engagement dans ses idées et de délivrer un message à propos du pouvoir. Ses premiers succès sont des thrillers politiques comme Z et L'Aveu
