- Michel Caudron - le 7ème juréas Michel Caudron - le 7ème juré
- (as Jean Debucourt Sociétaire de la Comédie Française)
Known as "Justice Is Done" in 1953 when it was first shown in the USA, it opens with a short briefing in English on the French jury system and then reverts to French with English subtitles. The Marshal summons the jury and an insight is given into the background of the seven jurors who are to decide on the guilt of the accused, a sick man's mistress on trail for his mercy killing. The trial appears to be not presented to prove her innocence or guilt, but rather to let the court (film) philosophize on the moral acceptability of euthanasia. —Les Adams <email@example.com>
More than a very beautiful film, it was for me source of powerful emotions. Because the theme remains provocative in profound sense, because Andre Cayatte gives a splendid example of high cinematography, because the moral dilemma works in admirable manner and, because it represents a not doubts gem first for the impecable end. A great, in so many senses, masterpiece.
