Not as shattering or powerful as it could be, largely because it's far too long and doesn't explore the personality of characters. This is a big problem in a film that looks at child sexual abuse within the Church as it reduces them to simply victims, rather than people. The flashbacks feel like sensationalism. Church's response is infuriating. Menochet (so different in Custody) and Arlaud do great empathetic work.
Le film est très bien, le jeu correct, le scénario délicat et les personnages plutôt intéressant. L'image n'est pas centrale mais correcte. Seul bémol, le fait que le film sorte avant le procès et risque de mettre en péril la délibération du jury ( il me semble que ça passe en assises )
