A rape case. No witnesses, but word against word. Who speaks the truth?
‘Les Choses Humaines’ is based on Karine Tuil’s prize-winning novel about a controversial rape case and the families whose lives are torn apart by the trial. The film poses a lot of questions and dilemmas as it slowly uncovers what actually happened that night. Some are answered and some are not. Tonight, we are joined by the director, Yvan Attal, who’ll fill us in on the rest and answer all your questions.


“The Farels are a power couple: Jean is a prominent French pundit and his wife Claire an essayist known for her radical feminism. Together they have a model son, Alexandre, who is a student at a prestigious American university.
During a brief visit to Paris, Alexandre meets Mila, the daughter of his mother’s new partner, and invites her to a party.
The next day, Mila files a complaint against Alexandre for rape, destroying family harmony and setting in motion an inextricable media-judicial machine that posits opposing truths.” – Synopsis

“Director Yvan Attal has produced a piece of classically solid French cinema, showcasing uniformly fine acting and an intricate story structure.” – Cineuropa

“It’s undeniably intelligent, classily mounted and well acted all round” – Screendaily
