Original title: I... comme Icare
In fictitious country president Marc Jarry is assassinated while his open top car stops in the middle of the street to greet the public. The killer, armed with sniper rifle, is spotted on top of the nearby building and himself dies of hand of unknown person. The official investigation concludes that there was only a lone gunman with mental problems. Attorney general, Henri Volney, refuses to sign the report. He is given the permission to continue the investigation and find the answers to all the questions he has put during the televised interview. As he continues to search for answers he stumbles upon evidence piling up in favour of large conspiracy over lone gunman theory.
I... comme Icare tells the story of JFK assassination, but without mentioning United States even one, instead it is set in some unnamed, fictitious country. But instead of concentrating on the investigation itself, the movie asks questions about our world and a human nature. Even asks the questions about JFK case that for some reason were never asked: if the long gunman was a madman, is he mad and thus shot the president or is he considered mad because he shot the president? If he wasn’t alone, then what inspired him to kill the politician? If he only was a scapegoat how could anyone be entangled in conspiracy without realizing it? How someone can be unaware that he is being manipulated into doing something he wouldn’t normally due?
Amazing movie with Yves Montand in one of his finest roles as the attorney general trying to find sense in something that on surface does not make sense. Also interesting because it presents the background of what politics looked liked in 1960s and 1970s.
