missing by costa-gavras

When I moved to London in the 90s I came across a battered VHS copy of 'Missing'.
The film had been banned, so I held onto my video-tape copy like a sacred relic.
The Costa-Gavras masterpiece tells the heartbreaking true story of a father's search for his missing son on the aftermath of Chile's military coup, the journalist Charles Horman.
A poignant tale, masterly performed by Jack Lemmon and Sissy Spacek, that leaves a shattering imprint of the true horrors of the world we comfortably live in.
