This movie by Costa Gavras won the 1970 best foreign film and stars Yves Montand and Simone Signoret. Taking place behind the Communist Iron Curtain in the 1950's, it shows how political terror and oppression were able to twist the truth. A senior government official is jailed and tortured until he confesses to be a spy and CIA agent. Semi-historical, the film describes the trials of Rudolf, Vlado Clementis, Arthur London and others who were judicially murdered on Stalin's orders in the 1950's. Film presented in Room 32.
