Germany German (Deutsch)

Auf dem Höhepunkt der iranischen Revolution wird am 4. November 1979 die US- Botschaft in Teheran gestürmt - militante Studenten nehmen 52 Amerikaner als Geiseln. Doch mitten in diesem Chaos gelingt es sechs Amerikanern, sich davon zu schleichen und in das Haus des kanadischen Botschafters zu fliehen. Es ist nur eine Frage der Zeit, bis der Verbleib der sechs bekannt wird - ihr Leben steht auf dem Spiel. Deshalb entwirft der auf das "Ausfiltern"spezialisierte CIA-Agent Tony Mendez einen riskanten Plan, um die Flüchtlinge außer Landes und in Sicherheit zu bringen. Dieser Plan ist so unglaublich, dass er sich nur im Kino abspielen kann...

France French (Français)

Le 4 novembre 1979, au summum de la révolution iranienne, des militants envahissent l’ambassade américaine de Téhéran, et prennent 52 Américains en otage. Mais au milieu du chaos, six Américains réussissent à s’échapper et à se réfugier au domicile de l’ambassadeur canadien. Sachant qu’ils seront inévitablement découverts et probablement tués, un spécialiste de «l’exfiltration» de la CIA du nom de Tony Mendez monte un plan risqué visant à les faire sortir du pays. Un plan si incroyable qu’il ne pourrait exister qu’au cinéma.

Italy Italian (Italiano)

Il 4 novembre 1979, mentre la rivoluzione iraniana raggiungeva l’apice, un gruppo di militanti entra nell’Ambasciata USA in Tehran e porta via 52 ostaggi. In mezzo al caos, sei americani riescono a fuggire e si rifugiano a casa dell’Ambasciatore del Canada. Ben sapendo che si tratta solo di questione di tempo prima che i sei vangano rintracciati e molto probabilmente uccisi, Tony Mendez, un agente della CIA specialista in azioni d’infiltrazione, mette in piedi un piano rischioso per farli scappare dal paese. Per riuscire nell'operazione queste sei persone vennero fatte passare per una troupe di Hollywood impegnata a svolgere delle ricerche per un film chiamato Argo. Così riuscirono a uscire dal Paese.
