A controversial opinion to say the least. While French cinema has been experiencing a new #MeToo for several weeks according to some, particularly since Judith Godrèche decided to denounce the abusive behavior of directors Benoit Jacquot, – with whom she lived for six years – from the age of 14 years old when he was 40, and Jacques Doillon, who allegedly raped her on set when she was 15 years old, some voices are being raised to express their concern about the growing number of testimonies against the two men.
And in particular Anny Duperey, interviewed on Saturday February 10 on RTL by Nathalie Renoux and who did not really go with the direction of the wind in this story. “I’m going to get punched, but I think this is all extremely exaggerated. That all the same, six years with a director… Under the influence, I’m willing, but still consenting, right? I don’t really know what to think about this thing, but I don’t really like late night witch hunts like that.“, she even said, evoking the relationship between Benoît Jacquot and Judith Godrèche.
An argument which made Internet users jump, in particular because the actress was only fourteen years old when their relationship began and therefore could not really express her consent. “She was a child!“, “She romanticizes rape“, “What is the value of consent at 14?“, “She shows that she knows nothing about the phenomenon of influence, which precisely takes place over time“, we can read in particular on X (formerly Twitter).
Separate the man from the artist?
And the rest of the interview was also controversial: the mother of Gaël and Sara Giraudeau actually pleaded for a separation between the man and the artist, taking Roman Polanski as an example, himself accused of rape on a 13-year-old minor in the 1960s.”Let’s admit that some men were predators like that, but they sometimes did beautiful works. And I would not at all like us to condemn their works at the same time as the man“, she explained.
“This is, for example, what happened with [Roman] Polansky. I mean it would be absolutely stupid, because Polanski slept with a girl who was 15, fifty or sixty years ago, to condemn his works! We are not going to condemn The Pianist, this extraordinary film, because of the personal actions of the director“, she judged.
Other damning testimonies
An argument which caused debate among the listeners and which should still agitate, in view of the serious accusations made against Benoît Jacquot and Jacques Doillon, both targeted by a complaint for “rape of a minor”. More and more accusations, moreover: if Judith Godrèche opened the ball, especially after a video from 2011, released in recent days and in which we hear the first to assume that the world of cinema “could be a cover“for relationships with underage girls and in which he explains that this”excited a lot“Judith Godrèche to go out with an already mature man, other actresses decided to speak.
And in particular Isild Le Besco, who also had a “relationship” with Benoît Jacquot when she was a teenager and who declared that Jacques Doillon had fired her from one of his shoots for refusing to sleep with him, or even Anna Mouglalis , who explained that the latter had kissed her by force. Accusations denied outright by both men.
Benoît Jacquot and Jacques Doillon remain presumed innocent until the definitive closure of the files concerning them.
