Beautiful, troubled Dominique Marceau (Brigitte Bardot) came to bohemian Paris to escape the suffocation of provincial life, only to wind up in a courtroom, accused of a terrible crime: the murder of her lover (Sami Frey). As the trial commences and the lawyers begin tangling over Dominique’s fate, Henri‐Georges Clouzot’s Oscar‐nominated La verité delves into her past, reconstructing her struggle to find a foothold in the city. What emerges is a nuanced portrait of an impulsive young woman misunderstood and mistreated by those around her, and of her ultimately tragic affair with an up‐and‐coming conductor. With an astonishing performance by Bardot, Clouzot’s affecting and intricately constructed film—a huge late‐career success for the French master—renders a harsh verdict against a hypocritical and moralistic society.
