The veteran French stage actor Philippe Torreton (L.627) gives a powerhouse performance as Alain Marecaux, who was arrested along with his wife and 15 others for pedophilia in 2001 in what came to be known as the “Affaire d’Outreau”, a tragic miscarriage of justice that played out over four grinding years. Forget the presumption of innocence. Despite the lack of evidence Marecaux is incarcerated, separated from his son and daughter and subjected to the wrath of heavy-handed police officers. For this principled, hard working and devoted family man it is a descent into the worst ordeal of his life. Before an unresponsive judicial system, false testimonies and an ambitious young judge who believes that he has landed the trial of a lifetime, Marecaux sinks further into a Kafkaesque nightmare as he’s slowly abandoned by his loved ones. Based on his memoir, and filmed with a “you-are-there” immediacy, this riveting film chronicles Marecaux’s determination to overcome despair and rebuild his shattered life.
