| A political film, almost a documentary
Very near Costa-Gavras's films, such as Z. But not as strong. Monica Vitti and Francois Perier they are both two excellent actors. But here they are not convincing at all. Instead, the bad guys, Jean Yanne and Michel Bouquet, they are. I think the story has credibility in real life. Possibly the things were even worse in real life than they are shown in this film. It's not a Thriller. A Drama, yes, it is. A big Drama. What is really happening in the real world, the production and sale of arms. The film tells us that after the US and Russia, France was the 3rd largest producer of weapons in the world. And perhaps it was true. In 1978, when the film is made. Since then, the situation has changed. US and Russia have kept their first two positions in the charts. But the order of those other countries is this: 3rd, Germany. Follow France, China, United Kingdom, Italy, Israel, Sweden, Ukraine. All these countries provide death on a planetary scale. They are in the same time big fighters for "the human rights". And they all are corrupt. As the whole planet Earth.
