"I... For Icarus"

(1979)

Director: Henri Verneuil

Director of Photography: Jean-Louis Picavet

Music by: Ennio Morricone


Slow and absorbing French crime procedural with allusions to the JFK assassination. The president of France is killed and a special prosecutor (Yves Montand) is dispatched and uncovers a sinister plot deep in the government. Directed by French crime master Henri Verneuil (The Sicilian Clan), "I...For Icarus" is patient and thorough in the details of a broad investigation. A cynical and depressing ending is sadly true to life. Bought at Videomatica.
