From acclaimed political filmmaker Costa Gavras (Missing, State of Siege) comes Z, a high tension, edge-of-your-set action thriller that closely parallels the real-life assassination of Gregoris Lambrakis, a Greek doctor, humanist and peace movement leader whose murder in 1963 by a group of right-wing terrorists led to an abortive public scandal. Hailed as one of the best political thrillers ever made, the suspenseful drama features superb performances by a top international cast, including Yves Montand, Jean-Louis Trintignant, and Irene Papas. Original music by Mikis Theodorakis. Academy Award winner for Best Foreign Language Film and Best Film Editing. New 35mm print in honor of the film’s 40th Anniversary.
Nuart Theater will be showing “Z” this week, April 3 -9.
