Azor: this drama by Andreas Fontana is a slow-burn almost-thriller, which looks at the profane alliance between people in power and financial institutions; it takes place in Argentina during its military dictatorship but could be expanded to many more instances. The main character’s trajectory is ponderous, filled with conversations where not much of what is said is sincerely meant. Fabrizio Rongione is fine as the Swiss banker that is a bit over his head, and so is Stéphanie Cléau as his wife. The film builds up a subtle sense of menace throughout, and the choice of the musical score (composed by Paul Courlet) is an important element for that; the supporting performances are another. Elegantly shot and edited.
