Le procès Goldman

Part of Previously Unreleased : films that were shown at important festivals at home and abroad, but were not released in Dutch cinemas.

Compelling courtroom drama by Cédric Kahn, known for Les Regrets (2009) and Une Vie Meilleure (2011).

In November 1975, the second trial of far-left activist Pierre Goldman began. At first instance he was sentenced to life imprisonment for four armed robberies, one of which resulted in the deaths of two pharmacists. He only claims his innocence regarding the latter accusation and within a few weeks becomes the icon of intellectual left-wing French people, including Simone Signoret. Goldman, sharp and provocative, makes no effort to appear sympathetic and frustrates and brutishes everything and everyone, including his own team of lawyers. This makes the outcome of the trial, in which he risks the death penalty, extremely uncertain.

Kahn reconstructs the trial without frills in a straightforward narrative structure without flashbacks. He filmed with three cameras at the same time, which gives you as a spectator the impression that you are present live in the courtroom. Le Procès Goldman was the opening film of the Quinzaine des Réalisateurs section at last year's Cannes Film Festival. The film received several nominations and awards, especially for lead actor Arieh Worthalter
