In the current context of testimonies about sexual violence against women, La Belle et la meute is a movie both upsetting and important. This thriller is inspired by a true story that has hit the headlines in Tunisia and by the book Guilty of being raped by Meriem Ben Mohamed (pseudonym of the victim).
Presented in the Official Selection – Un Certain Regard of the Cannes Film Festival, La Belle et la meute was greeted by fifteen minutes of applause and standing ovations.
