Truth does not always come from children's mouth

When I watched this film, I could not prevent myself to think of another very similar movie called THE HUNT, starring Mads Mikkelsen, but in a more painful manner, with the same scheme where the parents of the liar children prefer their kids to maintain their lies instead of finally telling the truth and make the innocent man free. Parents who are so afraid of the shame because of the kids. Unfortunately so realistic if you consider the human nature. Disgusting at the most. A great film, acted by powerful performances. But I repeat that this film is far less painful than the Scandinavian feature made in 2012.

One of André Cayatte's best film.
