I saw that film once and now try to find somewhere
I saw 'Dossier 52' few years ago in Kyiv during French film festival. It represented the 70-th years of French ñinematography. I was impressed a lot. Everything - the way of shooting, the plot - was unusual. I was impressed how person was destroyed. But nobody from my friends as from Ukraine as from other countries never heard about it. It's strange because the 'Dossier' is one of the greatest movies about secret services and there terrible methods. I never saw any film on this subject. This film has no romantic and heroic aureole about them. And I recommend to everybody to watch 'Dossier' - it is useful for understanding the reality of our world. And also it is an interesting work of art representing period of the 70-80-th years.
