Godrèche affair: the release of the film CE2 by Jacques Doillon postponed

The production of the film CE2, directed by Jacques Doillon, filmmaker implicated by several actresses including Judith Godrèche for sexual violence, announced Tuesday that its theatrical release was “postponed” until further notice. CE2, starring Nora Hamzawi and Alexis Manenti, was scheduled to be released in theaters on March 27. In mid-February, the production of the film announced that it would maintain this date, despite the filing of a complaint against it by Judith Godrèche, because it was not possible to adapt a release “to a legal calendar”. She called for this decision not to be interpreted as “the expression of deafness or indifference with regard to the accusations made against” the director. Actress Nora Hamzawi publicly opposed this decision to release the film in theaters: “I do not support this decision which, in my opinion, represents contempt for the words of women,” she said. commented.

Jacques Doillon, 79 years old, is implicated, alongside director Benoît Jacquot, 77 years old, in an investigation for “rape of a minor under 15 years old by a person in authority, rape, violence by a partner, and sexual assault on a minor over of 15 years per person with authority”, following a complaint from Judith Godrèche. The actress had filmed with him in The 15-year-old girl, released in 1989. She publicly accused him of having “groped” and kissed her on this set.

Isild Le Besco, for her part, announced that she was considering filing a complaint against Benoît Jacquot and Jacques Doillon, accusing the latter of having deprived her of a role in a film when she was 17, “from the moment where (she) refused his advances”. Anna Mouglalis also publicly accused Jacques Doillon of having “kissed her by force”. The director contested Isild Le Besco's version and described Anna Mouglalis' accusation as “grotesque”.

More generally, he says he is innocent, and defended himself publicly at the beginning of February, denouncing “arbitrary denunciations, false accusations and lies”, and saying he was at the disposal of justice.
