Synopsis

Mireille Bertillet, a small provincial magistrate engaged to marry a boring pharmacist, is transferred—to her great surprise—to the Central Law Court. Behind the move is the Attorney General, who wants an inexperienced judge to sit on big corruption cases. Recently, a huge dossier implicating a string of VIPs was put in the hands of Judge Montel, who opened his mouth too wide and landed up in jail....

Subject

I wanted make a film about the legal system, but without any courtroom scenes. I

preferred to tell this story about a small magistrate from the backwoods (a woman—did you know that 70% of magistrates are women?) who comes to Paris to work on big cases and betrays her love in order not to betray her responsibilities. I thought it was a beautiful story about a topic that’s never been dealt with before: all those hustlers sniffing around the seats of power, brokering shady deals.... (Jean-Pierre Mocky)
