Storyline

If you have to go to court, you pray not to have to appear before Michel Racine, an awfully ruthless judge. Unfortunately for him, this is what happens to Martial Beclin, a man accused of kicking to death his baby daughter. And you can easily guess what his feelings are on the first day of his trial. But neither Martial nor Michel knows it yet: this time, things may turn out differently. Why? Because judge Racine stops being himself the moment he recognizes among the jurors Ditte, a woman doctor he has been secretly in love for a couple of years... Written by Guy Bellinger

French Courtroom based romance
21 January 2017 | by t-dooley-69-386916See all my reviews

Fabrice Luchini plays Michel Racine a criminal judge who is known for being less than lenient. He is separated and has got to that curmudgeonly time of life. This day he starts a new trial of a man accused of infanticide of his own daughter – but then he spots one of the jurors and his heart quickens a beat.

This is a doctor who had treated him some two years ago – being is Ditte Lorensen-Coteret played by the marvellous Sisde Babbett- Knudsen ('Borgen' and 'The Duke of Burgundy') and he has been carrying a torch for her ever since. What follows are two trials – the one of the defendant and the other for himself but not as judge.

Now this is well made, acted, directed and filmed and it is a gripping story in places but it also takes its foot off the gas a few times too which means you can start mind meandering if you are not careful. That said it still kept me interested until the end so one I can recommend, but only once really so a rental option would be better advised.
