“I accuse”: a controversial exit for Roman Polanski

On the bill, this is Roman Polanski's film I accuse, released Wednesday, November 13. On the front page, it's an accused, Roman Polanski. The embarrassment is palpable among the spectators. “I did not go to see Polanski, I went to see the film”, defends one of them. “I understand the demands, but I'm still against censorship, whatever they are”, says another. Tuesday, November 12, in Paris, one of the two previews was canceled. Several feminists have expressed their opposition to this film.

“Polanski rapist, public accomplice”they chanted in front of the spectators. A photographer accuses Roman Polanski of having raped her in 1975, when she was 18 years old. She never complained, but the filmmaker's new film about a miscarriage of justice, the Dreyfus affair, convinced her to break the silence. The person denies the facts of sexual violence. This is not the first time the director is faced with such accusations. In 1977, he was sued in California for raping a 13-year-old girl.
