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.

The master of the political thriller, Costa-Gavras became an instant phenomenon after the mammoth success of Z, and he quickly followed it with the equally riveting The Confession. Based on a harrowing true story from the era of Soviet bloc show trials, the film stars Yves Montand as a Czechoslovak Communist Party official who, in the early fifties, is abducted, imprisoned, and interrogated over a frighteningly long period, and left in the dark about his captors’ motives. Also starring Simone Signoret and Gabriele Ferzetti, the film is an unflinching, intimate depiction of one of the twentieth century’s darkest chapters, told from one bewildered man’s point of view.

Surgit alors Raymond, accompagné de son ami d'enfance, Manda, un ancien apache reconverti en charpentier sérieux et convaincu. Entre la belle et le charpentier, le coup de foudre est immédiat.

Simone Signoret, Anton Walbrook, and Simone Simon lead a roundelay of French stars in Max Ophuls’s delightful, acerbic adaptation of Arthur Schnitzler’s controversial turn-of-the-century play Reigen. Soldiers, chambermaids, poets, prostitutes, aristocrats—all are on equal footing in this multicharacter merry-go-round of love and infidelity, directed with a sweeping gaiety as knowingly frivolous as it is enchanting, and shot with Ophuls’s trademark mellifluous cinematography.

Yves Montand disparaît le 9 novembre 1991, il y a vingt ans. La vie de l'artiste est faite de beaucoup de vies qui s'entremêlent : l'ascension d'Ivo Livi, un petit immigré italien qui devient une star internationale, l'extraordinaire carrière au music-hall, les dizaines de rôles sur le grand écran, la rencontre avec des femmes qui sont elles-mêmes des mythes : Edith Piaf, Simone Signoret ou Marilyn Monroe, l'engagement, enfin, dans les combats politiques du XXe siècle. Revenir sur la vie de Montand, c'est faire plusieurs voyages : depuis les collines de sa Toscane natale jusqu'aux cintres du Metropolitan Opera de New York, de l'Alcazar de Marseille aux studios d'Hollywood, des cabarets de l'Occupation à l'Olympia, de la place Rouge à la Maison-Blanche. Denis Podalydès raconte.
