I... For Icarus ★★★★

This story is entirely true since I entirely imagined it.

The French having a crack at the Kennedy assassination. A president gets shot, a commission comes up with doubtful findings. Not acceptable for state attorney Henri Volney (Yves Montand), who reopens the case and soon finds out there's far more to it than the 682 pages of the initial report suggest. That means good old seventies paranoia in an icy cold atmosphere, fueled by a conspiracy plot that plays out like an extremely methodical policier. No bells and whistles here, but with a little patience and love for this dry French style you will soon find yourself completely absorbed by its mystery and meticulous investigation. It made my hands sweat twice. During the phone booth scene and the ending. Powerful film.
