Competing in the 2019 Cannes Film Festival for the Palme d’Or, a true-crime film offering a dark, yet compassionate, exposé of the flawed human condition. Inspired by Mosco Boucault’s 2008 television documentary on the true story Roubaix, commissariat central, affaires courantes – which gives this film an added touch of authenticity – Oh Mercy! reveals why Desplechin remains one of the most enduring filmmakers working in France today. Heartfelt drama combines with true crime thrills to ask the important questions about presumptions of guilt and innocence.
