Summary/Abstract: As a renowned and controversial personality, director Costa Gavras is the promoter of French political thriller. His movies are variations on the theme of totalitarian abuses, with disputing topics and a heavy social-economic impact upon the thriller and suspense films of hollywoodian origin. Through the heavy impact a film has upon its audience, through the releasing of various human reactions (moral, educational and emotional), between detachment and envolvement, between resolution and indecision, between learning the truth or not – Costa Gavras’s filmmaking is a political endeavour.
