La fille au bracelet

Stéphane Demoustier, France, Belgium, 2019o


Following the death of her best friend, 16-year-old Lise, member of a wealthy middle-class family, comes under investigation for murder. As her parents deal with the accusations in different ways, Lise is required to account for a way of life that doesn’t always comply with the morality approved of by the justice system.

“I love you” means nothing. Everyone says “I love you”. A young girl called to the witness stand casually drops these disarmingly simple words that are enough to give one chills. That is a recurring feeling throughout this unusually precise courtroom drama, where words and their power are at the center of attention. In this case, the legal proceedings become the ritual of a society putting its own youth on trial.

Victor Bournérias

Avec un film aussi réaliste que haletant, Stéphane Demoustier offre à la justice française la fiction qui lui manquait.

Pierre Charpilloz

Le film français brille par la rigueur de son écriture (les audiences en cours d’assises sont des blocs solides) et par l’intelligence de sa direction artistique.

Jean-Sébastien Massart

La fille au bracelet remplit son office : il est une chronique judiciaire efficace, mystérieuse et source de questionnements, qui amène le spectateur à faire ses propres choix.
