I'm Innocent, You Know That Right?
4 / 5
Directed by Justine Triet.
A woman is suspected of her husband’s murder, and their blind son faces a moral dilemma as the sole witness.
A tragic incident lights the fuse of an explosive courtroom drama that challenges audiences to question the Anatomy of a Fall.
Sandra Hüller leads this fascinating character piece with a mesmerising performance that leaves you examining every line and action as we try to decipher what happened to her husband after he was found dead outside of their home.
A film that heavily depends on the intricacies of the performances delivers in droves with Hüller leading the charge but newcomer Milo Machado-Graner gives her a run for her money with a role that grows more divided and unsettled as the film goes on. Hell, even the dog gives an outstanding performance - everyone is on top form.
A compelling watch that keeps you on the edge of your seat and could have benefited from a tighter running time to land with full impact.
