Conviction / Une intime conviction (N/C 15+)

Olivier Gourmet and Marina Fois star in writer-director Antoine Raimbaul’s feature debut, which is based on a much-publicised French murder trial. Raimbault has crafted a nail-biter of a courthouse thriller on the murder trial of Jacques Viguier, played by Laurent Lucas (Lemming). Viguier— a father of three and distinguished law professor in Toulouse — was arrested in 2000 for killing his wife, Suzanne, after she disappeared from their house on a Sunday morning, although her body was never recovered and there was no tangible evidence to ever convict him. Acquitted at his first trial nearly ten years after the fact, Viguier was retried a year later in the Cour d’assises. Famous trial lawyer, Dupond-Moretti (Olivier Gourmet), agrees to take on the case.
