Storyline

Know as "Justice Is Done" in 1953 when it was first shown in the USA, it opens with a short briefing in English on the French jury system and then reverts to French with English subtitles. The Marshal summons the jury and an insight is given into the background of the seven jurors who are to decide on the guilt of the accused, a sick man's mistress on trail for his mercy killing. The trial appears to be not presented to prove her innocence or guilt, but rather to let the court (film) philosophize on the moral acceptability of euthanasia.

Stretching my memory back 61 years.
17 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I was 12 years old in Silver Spring, MD; theater-man Paul Roth took over Warner's double feature house the SECO and remodeled it into an art theater, Roth's Silver Spring. The admission price went from 44 cents now up to $1.00 (which was double any nearby admission price. It was a new atmosphere, no popcorn, and they served free coffee in the lounge. This was the first "art" theater in Washington DC's suburbs.

Today in 2011, most moviegoers have to dumb-ourselves-down in order -- as grown-ups -- to see the mindless drivel Hollywood makes to please the 12 year-old's. In 1950, quite regularly the 12 year-old's would reach upward and try to grasp and enjoy movies aimed at adults. Thus it was with the French drama, "Justice is Done." This excellent court drama was my first movie with subtitles. What a start! I've never since then seen a movie with so many subtitles. Talk, talk, talk! Of course with a criminal case in court, lots of talking has to be done. Reading subtitles opens up the mind to many great movies. "Wild Strawberries" (the best movie ever made), "Seven Samurai" others.

Roth's Silver Spring (the Seco) still exists, functioning now as a church. I had my first date with Diane at Roth's; later my last date with Diane at Roth's --- sacred ground I'd say.
