Storyline

Paul Berthier, an ambitious public prosecutor, is witness to the accidental drowning of a young girl in the Charente but does nothing to help. It starts to look like the girl was murdered, and the case lands on Berthier's desk. Suspicion turns to Guillaume Vauban, the rich son of a local industrialist and ex-boyfriend of the dead girl. Paul Berthier finds himself entangled in a web of lies as he opens the case against Guillaume, who has now been arrested. With a conscience far from clear, Berthier agrees with the judge's decision to remand the young man in custody. Through cowardice Berthier clings to his reputation, determined to save face at any cost. Drunk with judicial power, he's caught in a downward spiral. Written by filmandpicture.com

correct work
29 April 2017 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

a prosecutor as redeeming hero of a small community. his weakness moment as result of a painful episode from the past. and the right choice for remains loyal to yourself. short, a French crime film who reminds many other films from the same genre, using psychological sketches, ordinary solutions for define the characters - clichés and stereotypes -, giving, as nice gift, the meet with Hyppolite Girardot and a decent work of Bruno Solo. short, a correct film, part of a long tradition, cold and not always convincing, but correct , like a homework, mix of duty, public pressure and moral problems, portrait of a man looking for preserve his impeccable public image and serving the truth with high honesty.
