About the Film

Director: Emmanuel Finkiel
Actors: Nicolas Duvauchelle, Mélanie Thierry, Driss Ramdi

After he is violently attacked in the street, Eddie wrongly identifies Ahmed, an ideal suspect whom he'd noticed a few days before the attack. While the legal machine gets underway with Ahmed, Eddie attempts to win back his wife and son through a new job. But Eddie soon becomes aware of the seriousness of his accusation and he'll do anything to establish the truth, even if it means he risks losing everything.

Praise

Nicolas Duvauchelle was nominated for Best Actor at the 2017 César Awards and 2017 Lumière Awards for his performance in the film.

A Decent Man (Je ne suis pas un salaud) is a dark and brooding portrait of contemporary malaise...
– Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Review
Finkiel incisively builds his lead characters, subtly developing relationships along with alienation, resentment and racism to paint a picture of an average Joe whose weaknesses are distressingly commonplace.
– Jay Weissberg, Variety
