A truly classic and chilling film about the assassination of political activist, Gregoris Lambrakis, in Greece in 1963. Should be required viewing in any history class.

"Hailed as one of the greatest political thrillers ever made", it's based on the assassination of a left wing/democratic politician in Greece in 1963. There's a lot of real-life background about Greece's political climate in the post-WW II years in the extras and/or commentary.

Good film made me feel like I am observing all the situation in front of the screen. Criminal government was an important issue in Turkey too, still is. Law and justice can be dirty but still there are good ones who do the right thing.

Fantastic film. See this one and Missing -- they sure don't make them like this anymore. Solid Criterion release.

This is powerful film-making. The director has a direct link to the unstable political history of Greece and, indeed, all of the portrayals and actions on screen are intended to evoke true events. Costa-Gavras also knew he was making a film, and to him that meant that it should entertain and resonate for years to come. This should be required viewing in high-schools.
