Although he confessed to armed robberies in Paris in the late 60s, Pierre Goldman, a left-wing intellectual, claimed himself innocent of the murder of two pharmacists during one of them. Sentenced to life imprisonment in jail, he wrote Dim Memories of a Polish Jew Born in France, which won him a second trial. This riveting courtroom drama, taken from the actual transcripts, is breathlessly compelling. Opened the Directors’ Fortnight at Cannes.
