Judith Godrèche accuses two well-known administrators of abusing her as a younger lady. Your allegations are explosive for the French movie milieu.

IIn 2019, Adèle Haenel made severe allegations in opposition to Christophe Ruggia. Between 2001 and 2004, the person, then in his late thirties, touched her inappropriately and sexually harassed her between the ages of twelve and fifteen as a part of a casual, virtually weekly performing class. The case induced fairly a stir 5 years in the past: star actress accused obscure movie director. However, it didn’t lead to a profound upheaval and even change in France's movie world.

Now Judith Godrèche has formulated related, much more severe, allegations. After the failure of 2019, they might turn into the overdue MeToo explosion that blows up the concrete bulwark of machismo and misogyny, patriarchy and perversion of the French movie milieu. Because the accusation just isn’t directed in opposition to an unknown particular person, however in opposition to two massive names in auteur cinema.
