Go Tell the Spartans (1978)

A unit of American military advisors in Vietnam prior to the major U.S. involvement find similarities between their helpless struggle against the Viet Cong and the doomed actions of a French unit at the same site a decade before in this bitter look at the beginnings of the Vietnam war.

Committed anti-war drama, somewhat dated by now.

Elise Hélène Gatschene

La passante du Sans-Souci (1982)

A reputable businessman, a rich self-made man with a conscience who founded a highly visible and active international organization fighting against violations of human rights murders an an ambassador.

A political-historical drama competently set in a courtroom and told in long flashbacks.
