Trivia

The movie depicting real-life events that were still on trial, Father Preynat's lawyers tried in the week before release to prevent the film from hitting cinemas, at least until the judgment and despite its Silver Bear won at the Berlin Film Festival a few days prior. They invoked the fact that Father Preynat is presumed innocent until convicted. The court decided to allow the movie to be released, arguing the priest had already pleaded guilty. See more »

Very disturbing and very well made movie on a highky touchy subject
1 March 2019 | by gcarpiceciSee all my reviews

This is a powerful and very disturbing movie based on true facts; the movie is extremely well directed and the key characters' performance is stunning. The film throws a punch in the stomach without wallowing in the details of the sexual scandals, but rather focusing on the devastating consequences of sexual abuse had on children and on their subsequent lives. And, as if that weren't enough, another wave of emotional impact comes when the victims, after long internal struggle, decide to come out and denounce the facts to the public; this has bring massive tensions to themselves and their families. Director and actors deliver an outside performance in rendering such deeply emotional situations in a very dramatic and realistic fashion. You wonder walk out of the cinema without being profoundly touched by this story.
