The Red Sweater

Reviews
This fact-based film takes place in Southern France circa 1974, where a little girl's murder puts nearby residents into a panic. Soon, young Frenchman Christian Ranucci (Serge Avedikian) is taken into custody amid the public outcry to find the killer. Ranucci is quickly tried and sentenced to death, but not without controversy and questions about his trial, which might have excluded exonerating evidence -- an oversize red sweater found on the crime scene that apparently didn't belong to Ranucci.
