Format: DVD
Costa-Gavras provides us with a film that echos the often the over-looked mood and spirit of life under the "Generals" in Greece during the 1960s. [The film was released in 1967.] Gregorios Lambrakis, a popular left-wing figure was killed in 1963 in Greece. "Z" is a fictionalized story of a journalist who digs for a the truth behind the death of an eerily similar victim in a fictitious country. I was rivetted by this film and quite surprised by the courage it took to create a film so obviously meant to criticize the Greek junta. Costa-Gavras took a great deal of "heat" from the Greek government. It did not appreciate his perceived political interference by directing and releasing "Z." ZZ: Masterworks Edition (Widescreen)Whistle Blower (Widescreen/Full Screen)Outstanding casting with Jean-Louis Trintignant, Jacques Perrin, Yves Montand and Irene Papas made this film very believable. The "Z" even has a profound meaning" "He lives."

In a time of incredible paranoia and fear, propogated by a police state apparatus with virtually no limits to its power - the ability of a few people with a desire and the courage to seek justice make a difference. Here this is no cliché. Greece was the birthplace of democracy. I find it poignant that some democratic protests in Greece in the 1960s are the cannonade launching "Z." Do not pass this by. Purchase this DVD!

Format: DVD
I first saw this film in 1970 when I was a college student. In 2004, it retains its relevance to me as an Amercian. A few years after this film was released, the CIA intervened in Chile when they assisted in the overthrow of a democratically-elected Communist president. Sometime before that the U.S. government had enabled the Shah of Iran to come to power in that country. In the 1980s, the U.S. supported insurgents against another democratically-elected Communist in Central America. Now the U.S. has militarily overthrown the leader of Iraq, is maintaining an occupation force in that nation, and is seeking to establish a new government there. So this movie -- which was about a 1962 military coup in Greece -- has significant meaning for Americans. This is not a particularly well-made film technically. There are several scenes where cameras and the boom are visible. The script is not very compelling, either. The actors are European veterans and the emotional power is great, leading to an unforgettable conclusion that violates the sensibilities of people that love freedom and democracy. These are the reasons, in my opinion, that this film won an Academy Award and resonated with the American intelligentsia. "Z" is not pleasant viewing but is an antidote to airheadedness in a time when most Americans are more concerned with liposuction, botox injections and push-up bras than national intervention in other nations.

Format: VHS Tape
The 1969 Oscar winner for best foreign film is based on the 1963 assassination of Greek communist politician and doctor Gregorio Lambrekis. The opening sequence of first the agriculture minister equating mildew with communism and the Greek chief of police advocating the indoctrination of the population to become healthy elements of society loyal to God and the crown instead of isms like socialism, anarchism, imperialism, or communism describes the stranglehold the right has in Greece.
The Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament is denied a hall for its meeting due to the hall owner threatened by right-wing elements so the peace people have no choice but to hold at the Employee Union Hall, with loudspeakers outside for the benefit of the crowd outside. The leader of the movement (Yves Montand) decides to carry on with the speech despite learning of a threat on his life. He finishes his speech and is crossing the square to demand the police quell the seething rioters when he is struck in the head from someone in the back of a lorry. He is operated on but dies. His death not only makes him a martyr among his supporters, but causes a coverup to ensue. A determined photojournalist and the inquest judge assigned to the case soon realize the extent of the conspiracy, a conspiracy that goes up to the top.
The journalist's relentless digging leads to identifying members of CROC, the Christian Royalist Organization against Communism, a secret society the cops use to keep order at parades. The leader of CROC says, "Abroad, some say make love, not war! We say, 'Make war on corruption and liberalism, and on indiscriminate liberty!

The "experts" commenting here advise avoiding the English "DUBBED" version.
The ENGLISH VERSION was filmed in parallel with the french version (The use of french was necessitated to have it distributed in Europe as the original Greek would have limited draw.) The incident took place here in Thessaloniki Greece, where I live).
All the performers were fluent in English and you can recognize their voices.
It was not "Dubbed" (watch their lips "expert").
Now those of you who know where the original English language version can be found, speak up.
It is an excellent film and deserves to be experienced. (Read the book.)
