A private banker from Switzerland named Yvan de Wiel arrives in Argentina in the midst of a brutal dictatorship alongside his wife, Ines, to find out what happened to his business partner, Keys. Although a shroud of confusion and unease surrounds Keys' disappearance, it's clear he left an important job behind for Yvan to complete.

WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

90

Variety by Jay Weissberg

Like the intelligent performances — both Rongione and Cléau are standouts — and the terrific art direction, the film’s design reinforces an exquisite, levelheaded decorum about to be smashed by a chillingly cruel monster.
100

The Playlist by Joe Blessing

Azor itself is a code word meaning “to not say too much” or “to keep one’s cards close,” a trait that the film and its protagonist so excel at, viewers will be kept guessing until the last moment.
75

Slant Magazine by Keith Watson

With its elegantly restrained cinematography, exquisitely understated performances, and quietly sumptuous production design, Azor embodies the same well-mannered urbanity as its protagonist.

Screen Daily by Wendy Ide

The striking feature film debut from Andreas Fontana brings a prickly thriller sensibility to the closed world of high finance and a piquancy to the phrase ‘dirty money’.
