quite a fight
10 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

"The Clearstream Affair" from 2014 is the true story of Denis Robert, played here by Gilles Lellouche, a journalist who persisted in his fight to prove the dishonest practices of the banking firm Clearstream.

Since a lot of politicians and higher-ups are involved, he has a hard time of it, especially since witnesses are too afraid to come forward. But the more he finds out, the worse the scandal becomes, and he finds himself embroiled in dozens of lawsuits for libel.

This is a real David v. Goliath story, and we don't see how it actually ended - that's told in the chirons at the end of the film.

There was an emphasis on Robert's dealing with his family, which I could have done without - the actual story of the invisible bank accounts, the raven list, etc., and betrayal from the inside is interesting in its own right.

I thought this could have been better, though it is a compelling story of corruption at the very top and how hard it is for someone attempting to get at the truth.
