The subject which Cayatte tackled in the late seventies was not legend;it was fact.Everybody knew that France was the world's third arms seller and that they sometimes sold weapons to countries which were enemies.
In the movie,Tongo and Zana ,two imaginary countries which sound African.Two biologists know more than they do.First the professor Marrot ,then Angela Ravelli (Monica Vitti) try to alert public opinion.
It's more a thriller than a truly political movie,and it's more entertainment than thought.But it was a courageous move from Cayatte ,the first French director who made a film about death penalty in 1952.
