“Beautifully acted and deeply impressive [and] suffused with a simmering anger.”~David Stratton, The Australian

Aroview: Hard-hitting French-Belgian drama about three sexual abuse victims who attempt to the to justice the Catholic priest who was responsible.

A gripping story based on the real-life Catholic sexual abuse scandals in Europe, in which the church shielded the guilty. Director Francois Ozon has interpreted these fact-based events into a straight-forward crime drama that needs little embellishment, just strong, compassionate and honest storytelling.
