A period piece for the MeToo era, that’s the description handed to the latest film from celebrated French director François Ozon.
Mon Crime follows the story of a young actress living in 1930s Paris who is the victim of an attempted sexual assault.
After her would-be assailant is found dead, she is put on trial and finally becomes a feminist icon.
Ahead of the film’s release on March 8, Euronews spoke with the film’s director about its importance and why he decided to set it in the 1930s.
