Over the course of his long and legendary career, the Greek director Costa-Gavras (“Z”, “Missing”, “Music Box”) has won almost every single major international accolade. At 76, he returned with perhaps his most personal film, the odyssey of Elias, a clandestine traveler seeking a better life. Jumping ship (his origins forever remain untold), he wakes up at a luxury resort and embarks on an extraordinary journey to reach Paris, taking him across a microcosm of contemporary Europe. An epic story for our times, Gavras memorably captures the magical nature of the world Elias finds himself in, but also one in which every experience is full of threat. Berlin, Closing Night.
