Plot – Spoilers:
Michel Dumont drives a piece of shit car and lives a piece of shit life full of passivity. His ex-wife refuses to give him much rights over their kids, though he is ever willing to be of assistance to her. Then one day, Michel is accused of rape by a woman who lives in the neighborhood.

L’affaire Dumont” is a French Canadian drama movie that is inspired by true events where a poor and shy guy gets accused for a rape he doesn’t seem to have committed. The movie completely focuses on the portrait of the desperate suburbs and their inhabitants during the nineties and in particular the life of the main character who goes through hell and heaven and back again. He had a very tough childhood with an brutal and abusive father and an ignorant mother, has no permanent job and struggles to have enough money to live a comfortable life, lives a very difficult separation from his ignorant ex-wife and his beloved children that are not very well treated by their mother’s new boyfriend, gets to know that those who seemed to be his friends don’t do anything to get him out of trouble, faces a corrupt trial of justice and many issues with his untalented lawyer and goes through a rough time in prison including abuse and hatred committed against him. During all this time, he claims to be innocent and finds one person days before the start of his prison sentence that will never stop fighting for him and becomes the love of his life. Their relation grows and the never give up the idea of a brighter future. The movie completely puts aside any action scenes, special effects or spectacular moments. The flick concentrates on the excellent actors incarnating very profound and credible characters. The movie is filled with cold… Read more »
The word “woman” should be replaced with the phrase “future false rape accuser”.
“Hey Anderk, congratulations on your new baby! Is it a boy or a future false rape accuser?”
LOFL! But seriously.
fab loved it, fekin effedup women,, cants!!!!!!
OK – It’s a good movie but I hate watching movies about a falsely accused, innocent person getting railroaded. It’s a true story which makes it even more horrifying. The callousness of the people who are in the “justice” system is remarkable. A good film that is disturbing but not in a good way at all.
Director Daniel Grou always has the 2 guys from “7 Days” make an appearance in his films. Martin Dubreuil, the bad guy in “7 Days,” is cast as Michel’s first lawyer. Claude Legault, the doctor in “7 Days,” has a cameo as the bald guy discussing inconsistencies in the victim’s testimony near the end of the film.
There are two people that I know who were falsely accused of rape. Their faces were in the front page of the newspapers when they were accused but when the girl confessed that it was all a lie, that story was buried on page 31. It’s like the bullshit “Hands Up Don’t Shoot” story that has been proven to be a lie, but people will believe it was true until the day they die.
Well I can’t say I enjoyed this film but Grou is a great director and it is an important story. I won’t ever watch it again but I’ll give it 4 stars.
oh hey, its the guy from 5150 Elm’s Way. nice characterization, I only recognized his voice

Wow, at two hours long, this was bit boring…. but i kept watching, just to see how it would turn out for this poor guy. shows what a good woman can do to correct the damage done by the previous rotten ones. Thanks Again EU

Anyone seen Fred Fat? He left the lights on on his Buick.

Just a little sneak-peek at a scene in a movie I’m making. Starring Fred Fat himself. That’s all I’m saying.
Well, alright, since you guys asked…
He basically plays a carni in a traveling sideshow. But he always manages show up late to the gig for whatever reason.
This is the scene where I try to let Fred know he’s left his car lights on, and since it’s a shitty Buick, I figure I should warn him so he can continue working at the sideshow.
You’ve been a great audience. You really have. Feel free to leave words of encouragement or anything you would like to add to make the scene stronger👍
