Costa-Gavras puts the United States' involvement in South American politics under the microscope in this arresting thriller. An urban guerilla group, outraged at the counterinsurgency and torture training clandestinely organized by the CIA in their country (unnamed in the film), abducts a U.S. official (The Wages of Fear'sYves Montand) to bargain for the release of political prisoners; soon the kidnapping becomes a media sensation, leading to violence.
