Movie Column He's a different kind of director By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD (AP) A big nternational movie hit of 1970 was X, a gripping story of sup- pression by the Greek govern- nent. The film has earned mil- ions; its creator was paid This seeming inequity does not appear to upset Costa-Gav- ras, the 30-year-old Russian- ireck director of Z. "I have no he re- marks. "I just wanted to make ;he picture. The money didn't matter." Costa-Gavras admits that he is a different kind of director. His style is not new, though, since it harks to the socially conscious Hollywood films o! the 1930s, which dealt with mi- grant farmers, prison conditions and other causes. Costa-Gavras does not try to deal with social ills. He tackles entire governments 2 was an indictment of the regime of Greece. Now the director has taken on the Czech Communist regime and their Russian bosses. The film is called The Confes- sion. Like Z it is based on fact. I first started thinking about it after the invasion of Costa-Gavras related on a visit here. "I was stunned bv it. and I realized that Stalinism was not fin- ished." He read a book by Artur Lon- don, a Czech vice-minister of foreign affairs who was one of three survivors of a purge trial in 1952. Costa-Gavras made a deal with London and cast Yves Montand and Simone Signoret as the Czech and his wife. The Confession is powerful stuff, depicting the torture methods of the Communists in unrelenting manner. Less mel- odramatic than Z, it will proba- bly not attract as large an audi- ence. Costa-Gavras admitted that such films are not easy to sell to production companies. That accounts for his minor reward thus far. Unflinchingly he related the box-office returns from Z thus far: million in the United States, million in France, million in Italy, million in Argentina. The film's cost: "be- tween thousand and thousand-" Nor will he profit from The Confession. "When I was trying lo find a backer for Z, 1 took the script to producer Robert he said. "He didn't like it, but he said he would advance me some money for my following picture. "I took his otter in order to have some money while I was trying to sell Z." But there is potentially 8 happy fiscal ending to the tB-Gavras saga. He now ii flooded with offers and can as sure himself of a share of the proceeds next time. One of the deals he declined was to direct The Godfather. "I do not know America wel enough to make the hi explained. "It is peculiarly an American and Mafiosa prob- lem." Record firms back away from 4FLQ, FLQ' chorus TORONTO (CP) A young folk-rock singer says record companies "backed away" from a song he wrote with the cho- rus, "FLQ, FLQ, what in the world we gonna do 'bout you." "They were positively para- says David Sniderman Britton, 26. "When I started to peddle the thing, I figured it was a good time with a harmless lyric about peace and brotherhood. But I got the surprise of my He when I was told I'd written something that was politically risky." The record of One Coimtry, One Family is to be released today by A and M Records of Canada. It's recorded by The Eye of Horus, a Toronto folk- rock group that includes singer- musicians Arthur Charpentier, Vlyron Moskalyk and Mr. Brit- xm. Mr. Britton says he got the idea for the song after watching Prime Minister Pierre Tru- deau's television speech to the nation Oct. 16. He says one Toronto record company taped the number but hacked out of the deal because "they felt the politics of the lyr- ics were too dicey." Another company told him that they had it on good author- ity that if the French version of One Country was played in Quebec, tire FLQ would bomb not only the radio stations con- cerned but also the offices of the record company.
