Editorial Reviews

Un an apres l'assassinat du president Jarry, la Haute Cour, composee des plus hauts magistrats, rend son verdict: elle conclut que l'assassin etait seul et que c'etait l'oeuvre d'un desequilibre. Mais le procureur Henri Volney (Yves Montand) s'insurge contre cette decision et refuse categoriquement de signer le rapport d'enquete.

Telling more about this movie would already be too much...watch it !
B. Bruce
Il y a surtout une scène particulièrement forte, celle tirée de l'expérience faite aux USA par Stanley Milgram.
Viotti Silvio
Although this DVD is mentioned as zone 1, it works perfectly on zone 2 DVD players.

Un film policier exceptionnel, politique, tellement bien joué par Montand en pleine forme.
Yves Montand joue le rôle d'un procureur qui reprend une enquête sur l'assassinat d'un homme politique. Très largement inspiré par l'assassinat de JF Kennedy. avec une fin dramatique. Un excellent supense.

Il y a surtout une scène particulièrement forte, celle tirée de l'expérience faite aux USA par Stanley Milgram.

A voir et à revoir !

I saw this movie many years ago at the theater and I remember being fascinated by it. I recently tried to find it in Paris and after visiting many stores selling both new and used DVDs a store manager told me it was never made into a DVD (At least in France anyway)! I checked on amazon to see if someone is selling it used and to my great surprise I found the canadian version brand new and shrink-wrapped! No english subtitles but I would recommend it anyway. If you do not know french find someone who does and watch it with them. You will not be disappointed. Unlike other 70s movies which hold a better memory than they actually are, this movie is even better than I remember.

Yves Montand plays a prosecutor who is in charge of investigating the assassination of the president. What looked at first glance like the work of a lone madman soon turns out to be much more.

This movie is very well written. It is a work of fiction but it is also very much inspired by the death of President Kennedy. The plot is full of twists and turns while remaining plausible and logical.

Yves Montand was one of the best actors of his generation and gave one of his trademark performances.

The movie was entirely filmed in France yet has an American flair to it. It was mostly shot in suburban Paris. Outdoor locations feature high rise towers and modern architecture, as opposed to the typical villages and historical monuments often seen in French movies.

Classical French thriller. Nothing more to add to what has already been written in the other comments.

À noter tout de même: ce DVD est maintenant introuvable en Europe. La version vendue ici vient du Canada et elle est "Region free" (autrement dit: lisible sur n'importe quel lecteur de salon européen) et non pas Region 1 comme annoncé par Amazon.

I watched this movie while back and since then I always wanted to get it on DVD, this DVD quality is good, but there is no English audio or subtitles!!
It is not written anywhere in the product details that it has only French language, so if you don't know French don't buy it, it is a waste of money.

one of Yves Montands' best performance. comes in line with other politically themed movies such as "Z". word of caution. it does NOT have english subtitles. so if you do not understand french, you might be disappointed, but if you do, then this is a moovie to have.

The president of an unnamed western republic is shot dead at a public event and his supposed assassin is found dead a short while later. An investigation concludes that the president was killed by a lunatic who subsequently shot himself. Only one man disputes this conclusion, a public prosecutor named Henry Volney. Suspecting a cover-up, he takes charge of a new investigation to discover the truth...
Inspired by the assassination of John F. Kennedy in 1963, I... comme Icare is an absorbing but somewhat superficial political thriller, very typical of the neo-polar genre in French cinema of the late 1970s. At a time when the French people were disillusioned with right-wing politics and were increasingly suspicious of the activities of their security services, films like this were very popular, although they naturally helped to fuel the sense of paranoia and mistrust which was rife in the country.

J'ai la chance d'avoir obtenu ce fabuleux DVD récemment, ma vieille VHS étant usée jusqu'à la corde..Que dire...Le son est très bon, bien qu'en mono, hélas...Les couleurs ne sont pas "flashy" comme aujourd'hui, çà surprend au début, mais on s'y habitue... L'intrigue, nous la connaissons tous...Un des chef d'oeuvre français, qui, ici, passe sur tous les lecteurs, quelles que soient leurs marques ou leurs procédés techniques...Le DVD est encodé toutes régions, et non pas USA et Canada comme indiqué...A acheter si vous ne l'avez pas déjà !
