To be honest, it is rather slow paced but the directing was nothing short of amazing. Personally, I al... read more

" Notes: It is simply an amazing political thriller, easily one of the best I have ever seen. To be honest, it is rather slow paced but the directing was nothing short of amazing. Personally, I always dread it when US thrillers tend to loose focus and throw some random and tedious action scenes but it never happened here. Costa-Gavras keeps instead a realistic approach, almost clinical, and the thing was so sharp, there was not even room for any sub-plots or romantic angles. The only thing which"

"20.11. Costa-Gavrasin poliittinen jännäri on poliittinen ja jännittävä. Yllättävän hauksakin. Mukaansatempaiseva ja mallikas filmi."
