Présumé Innocent
22 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

Vincent Garenq is the new André Cayatte: apart from his first effort which dealt with gays who wanted a child ,his next three works " Presume Coupable " "L'Equipe " and "Kalinka " aka " Au Nom De Ma Fille " have seen him champion causes.

Unlike Cayatte ,a former lawyer who used fiction-and sometimes widely talked about affairs -,Vincent Garenq bases his films on real facts ;but like him ,and in spite of occasional flashbacks, he favors firm screenplays, linear story- telling .His style may seem jerky,telegraphic ,but his account covers 30 years (of fight against a blind justice which releases a criminal ,leaving him free to commit other horrors .)And this succinctness helps the director sustain the interest through the whole film.

Daniel Auteuil is ,as usual ,convincing as a father who devotes his life to do his beloved daughter justice ;and hats off to the make - ups: the principal is in his late thirties when he begins the task,and a sexagenarian when he finally wins the case ,and it's credible!

Even Hercules was not asked not such a labor :to clean the Augean stables of justice .That was what André Cayatte would do, that's what Vincent Garenq do today.
