Le timbre profond des "Feuilles mortes", l'air d'enfant vieilli de César et Rosalie, le cabotin sublime du Milliardaire… : dans la chanson comme au cinéma, Yves Montand a été immensément populaire, dépassant son statut de saltimbanque pour devenir, au côté de sa femme Simone Signoret, l'icône de toute une génération. Pourtant, rien n'aura été facile pour l'acteur, né Ivo Livi, disparu il y a un peu moins de 25 ans, le 9 novembre 1991, à l'âge de 70 ans. Celui qui a débuté au cabaret, repéré puis épaulé par Édith Piaf, aura passé sa vie à frôler le scandale amoureux tout en fonçant tête baissée dans tous les combats de son temps, quitte à se fourvoyer, du communisme encore stalinien au libéralisme bon teint.

This Costa-Gavras thriller stars Yves Montand as an East European government functionary, inexplicably imprisoned by his Communist superiors. He is not told why he has been arrested, nor has his wife (Simone Signoret) been informed of his fate. He never knows the whys and wherefores of the whole affair – nor does the audience. The Confession was based on the true story of loyal Communist Arthur London's unjustified purge trial of 1951. Despite the film's confusion, Costa-Gavras' Kafkaesque view of the world, in which the individual is overwhelmed by events that he can't possibly begin to understand, struck a responsive chord in the chaotic early '70s.
