The title of this movie is the translation of the French phrase "Grâce à Dieu", which is commonly used like "Thank God" is in English. It is a direct quote of an unfortunate phrase by ex-Archbishop Cardinal Barbarin in an interview: "Grâce à Dieu ces faits sont prescrits" ("Thank God these events are subject to the statute of limitation"), which was widely understood as expressing his relief that the perpetrator could no longer be prosecuted.

This film deals with a French topical subject with subtlety and sensitivity; it highlights an anger (and/or a deep malaise, according to the characters) at first latent then more and more perceptible. The analogy with the American movie Spotlight is obvious, the main subject being the same; but the way of revealing the truth differs. In synthesis: very good actors in a realization as sober as brilliant
