L'Aveu. (1969)

Greek born Costa-Gavras (also known as Constantin Costa-Gavras) studied comparative literature at the Sorbonne before attending the Institut des hautes études cinématograhiques (IDHEC). Famous for his political thrillers Costa-Gavras brings a particular political history to his work as his father was a Greek resistance fighter during World War II who was blacklisted by the right wing Greek government after the war. Costa-Gavras was refused entry to the United States and so undertook his studies in Paris, where he like so many other members of the New Wave virtually lived at the Cinématheque Français, an organisation he became director of in 1982. Much of his work has featured Yves Montand.
