FRENCH FILM FESTIVAL: ALL YOUR FACES

Director: Jeanne Herry

118 mins, France, 2023, Digital, Subtitled

Jeanne Herry brings together multiple stories with a brilliant ensemble cast including Adèle Exarchopoulos, Élodie Bouchez, Jean-Pierre Darroussin, Gilles Lellouche and the director’s mother, the veteran Miou-Miou. Through mediated face-to-face sessions, we share in the encounter of perpetrators and victims of criminal acts. The perpetrators talk about their actions and the reasons that led to them, while the victims talk about the trauma they have suffered, in a complex emotional journey towards reparation and forgiveness. This is a powerful drama about the work of Restorative Justice, a programme created in France in 2014 under the supervision of the criminal justice system.
