The Gladiators (1969)
Filmmaking firebrand Peter Watkins sets his satirical thriller in a near future where the world's nations are content to play out their aggressions with a televised series of ironically named "Peace Games," in which military contestants compete in frequently deadly variations of capture-the-flag. The game's purity is threatened when a French student interferes with a game that pits China against the West. Arthur Pentelow, Daniel Harle and Rosario Gianetti star. AKA: "Gladiatorerna," "Peace Game." 91 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtracks: English, French, Swedish and Chinese; Subtitles: English; audio commentary; bonus short; filmography.
