Perhaps the greatest political thriller of the 1970s, Costa-Gavras calls on Yves Montand to lead this story of an American who is kidnapped by guerrillas in Uruguay. The taut story is told against the backdrop of repressive politics, death squads and American involvement in Latin America.

This film is presented with the support of the Alliance Française de Manchester, the official centre for French language and Culture.
