Kudos to Jewison for an important, intelligent film. Someone I know who hadn't been to the cinema in decades saw The Statement last week and has had his faith in film restored by this movie.

Kudos to Jewison for an important, intelligent film. Someone I know who hadn't been to the cinema in decades saw The Statement last week and has had his faith in film restored by this movie.

I can't understand why newspaper critics focussed on the fact that French accents weren't used. I find that some directors, not this one, try to add in accents where they are not at all necessary. After all, the "real" characters merely spoke their language, and didn't have "foreign accents". As an English and French speaker, I find the use of accents in other films (that is, where the real character would not have spoken with a "foreign" accent, but in his or her own language) to be provincial at best and distracting at worst. The director is from Canada - as an intelligent person which we can assume he is based on his brilliant career, he would understand the importance of not adding in accents where they would not naturally have occurred.
