Namrata Joshi The New Indian Express Despite taking occasional liberties with the truth, Kahn and Hertzberg are scrupulous in documenting the famous second trial in all its minutest of details, and mine the inherent drama in the situation and create a fascinating portrait of a flawed hero. Jul 10, 2024 Full Review Esther Zuckerman indieWire With another subject, Kahn’s approach might come off as dispassionate, but Goldman is such a strangely alluring figure that he — and by association, Worthalter — give the film its fiery bent. Rated: B+ May 17, 2023 Full Review Jordan Mintzer Hollywood Reporter Riveting and politically relevant. May 17, 2023 Full Review Mariona Borrull Fotogramas Fortunately, Cédric Kahn ('The Prayer') draws contained but emphatic notes of the tension that the character awakens in our moral selves. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 4/5 Mar 19, 2024 Full Review Philipp Engel Cinemanía (Spain) Cédric Kahn reconstructs the historic trial of Pierre Goldman, a Jewish anti-fascist militant who, in Paris in the mid-1970s, was accused of a double murder. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 3.5/5 Mar 15, 2024 Full Review Luis Martínez El Mundo (Spain) Cédric Kahn continues to demonstrate the good pulse of French cinema to recount these trials through a frenetic exercise in frontal, truthful and enthusiastic filmmaking.

Petros T Even though the beginning is a little slow and maybe there isn't anything that extraordinary about how the movie is shot, "Le procès Goldman" is an increasingly captivating affair boasting good acting, interesting dialogues and potent sociopolitical themes. Overall, Cédric Kahn pulls off the whole courtroom drama thing very well: despite being talky, his film is immersive and not overbearing - and even if the finale isn't as moving as it could perhaps be, it's still a thought-provoking ride. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/08/24 Full Review Jane A Exceptional film. I am not a native French speaker but the amazing dialogue and 'not acting' acting were captivating, from start to finish. I don't think I've seen a better courtroom-based film, or one that conveyed wider issues at that time (still relevant) with such easy skill. I will definitely see this again. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/12/23 Full Review Read all reviews
