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.

A superb movie about the jury system.
24 June 2001 | by See all my reviews

It appears this movie has been confused with another superb french film noire, namely, "We are all assassins", in which convicted murderers are hauled off in the middle of the night to be executed. In "Justice est fait" the weakness of the jury system in France is explored. For example in the case in question if one of the jurors had learnt something personal he would have changed his vote.
