FRA | 1970 | dir. Costa-Gavras, with Yves Montand, Simone Signoret

In 1950s communist Czechoslovakia, government minister Anton Ludvik (Yves Montand in a heartrending performance), a war veteran who has long been a loyal party man, leads a relatively comfortable life with his wife, Lise (Simone Signoret). One day, he is arrested, tortured and made to confess to treason. Based on the true story of Artur London and sharply written by Jorge Semprun, L’Aveu is a plea against every form of totalitarianism.
