An actor, five defence speech, five moments of truth.

In Bobigny, Gisèle Halimi defends abortion. She denounces an obsolete law that prevents women from freely disposing of their bodies.

  • In 1976, its with the death penalty that Paul Lombard attacks, wanting to avoid the capital punishment to Christian Ranucci.
  • In Clichy-sous-Bois, Jean-Pierre Mignard defends the families of Zyed Benna and Bouna Traoré, electrocuted in a electric station for trying to escape a police control.
  • In 2006, the act of infanticide Veronique Courjault  lifts the taboo denial of pregnancy. 
  • In Bordeaux, the trial of Maurice Papon revisits the dark hours of French history.

Major court cases are never registered. The lyrics fade. But thanks to the reconstitution work led by Matthieu Aron, the words are again pronounced. Embodying the great figures of the bar, Richard Berry brings you back to life these great trials that reveal major social events that have marked the judicial history of the last forty years.

With Richard Berry

A staging of Éric Théobald

D’après Les grandes plaidoiries des ténors du barreau de Matthieu Aron
