Christian Vincent wrote a gem of a screenplay and then turned it into this delightful film. It's a judicial rom-com that takes us through a criminal trial in which 'what really happened' remains uncertain, even after the verdict. This courtroom drama forms the backdrop to the gradually revealed attachment existing between the presiding judge (played to absolute perfection by Fabice Luchini) and an ER anesthesiologist who helped save his life (Sidse Babett Knudsen from 'Borgen') and who later is summoned as a juror for the trial. Outstanding acting, superb dialogue and a light directorial hand make for a wonderful evening's entertainment. The English sub-titles are bang on and sometimes memorable. This is a film with a very French sensibility: subtle, gentle, warm and funny. Not to be missed.

Pas trop mauvais mais pas trop bon non plus. Je qualifirais ce film de moyen car l'histoire manque d'intérêt et ne rime à rien. Heureusement que Fabrice Luchini le rachète un peu car il est excellent comme toujours.
