Though Costa-Gavras clearly has a political axe to grind, he manages to do so without haranguing the viewer, keeping the film's focus on his characters and masterfully building tension as the story moves toward its stinging resolution.

Lemmon and Spacek are the film's highlight... It's a winning formula, and it's too bad that there isn't more of it.

In Costa-Gavras's fact-inspired political melodrama, Jack Lemmon gives one of his strongest performances as a naive, conservative American who gets rude political awakening when his leftist son is executed with the tacit knowledge of the US government

Time has not only been kind to the film, but has, -- unfortunately -- made it relevant all over again.

Spacek and Lemmon are fine as the missing man's wife and father, but what makes the film so overwhelming in places is its unending night-time imagery of a society coming apart at the seams.

Some tragic and disturbing films stick with you, long after you've seen them, filling you with dread and a wish that they don't represent real life.
