Trivia

France's Equality minister Marlene Schiappa said that she would not see the film, a sentiment seconded by President Emmanuel Macron's spokeswoman Sibeth Ndiaye. Culture minister Franck Riester said that Polanski's past actions should be taken into account moving forward. "A work, however great it is, does not excuse the possible mistakes of its author. Talent is not a mitigating circumstance; genius, not a guarantee of impunity," he said. However, Prime minister Edouard Philippe said he would go see the film with his children as it touches on an important event in France's history. [Hollywood Reporter, Nov. 2019] See more »

The last scene is revelatory...
30 November 2019 | by Antoine-LeboyerSee all my reviews

Polanski's movie is a very solid classic period picture with great acting.

The last scene between Dreyfus and Picquart echoes their first encounter at the beginning. It is a stunning scene (which I do want to spoil) which makes it a masterpiece and speaks suddenly of the France of today. Very highly recommended...
