A remarkably assured debut from Swiss director Andreas Fontana, Azor invites us into the  alluring world of the ultra-wealthy in 1980s Argentina. With the country in the clutches of a  military dictatorship, violence is always simmering just under the surface. Atmospheric and  

slyly seductive, this sophisticated political thriller teems with exquisite scenery and ominous  conversation. 

Set in Buenos Aires, the film follows private banker Yvan (Fabrizio Rongione, Two Days,  One Night) as he arrives from Geneva with his wife Ines (Stéphanie Cléau) to replace a  mysteriously missing colleague and placate their moneyed clientele. Moving through the  smoke-filled lounges and lush gardens of a society under intense surveillance, he finds  himself untangling a sinister web of colonialism, high finance, and a nation’s “Dirty War”. 

A highlight from this year’s Berlinale and New Directors/New Films, Azor evocatively depicts  the uneasy interplay between wealth and power. Written in collaboration with Argentinian  filmmaker Mariano Llinás (La Flor), this is a riveting look at international intrigue worthy of  John le Carré or Graham Greene.
