Argo USA 2012 – 120min.

Short description


Action Drama

November 4, 1979: with tension between the US and the Ayatollah Khomeini's Iran at its height, demonstrators force their way into the US embassy in Teheran, taking 50 Americans hostage. They demand the Shah be sent home to face charges of crimes committed in the interest of the West. Six hostages manage to escape through a back door to the Canadian ambassador's house. But the extremists find out and are on their heels, probably with intent to kill. The CIA calls in an «exfiltration» specialist to help the six escape the country in a major sleight-of-hand scheme: by passing off the fugitives as a Canadian camera team there to shoot a sci-fi movie.

Hated it; reminded me of the awful atmosphere of Iran, the rude and uneducated people and religious garbage.

Intensely gripping. Brilliant set design that captures the late 70s with an eye for detail.
