The Conversation – 50th Anniversary 4K Restoration

Directed by Francis Ford Coppola

Harry Caul, a detached and paranoid surveillance expert, finds himself becoming a victim of the same technology he uses to destroy others.  

It begins with a seemingly routine job trailing an unfaithful wife and her lover. But when Harry visits the husband’s office to deliver the incriminating tapes he’s made, he’s intercepted and begins to suspect that he may have captured a conversation about something much more sinister than adultery. 

Reported to be Coppola’s favourite of his films, The Conversation boasts an exceptional cast that includes Gene Hackman, John Cazale, and Allen Garfield, as well as featuring a notable early performance from Harrison Ford. As well as the Palme D’or, the film won numerous awards, including BAFTAs for Editing and Sound, recognising Walter Murch’s ground-breaking work.
