Présumé coupable

Loosely based on real events, this harrowing, superbly made drama by fast-rising filmmaker Gerardo Naranjo is Mexico’s submission for Best Foreign Language Film — rightfully so
-Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
Matyas Erdely helps the director bring a measure of blood-chilling control to the whole horrific affair, elevating the entire aesthetic in the process.
-Peter Debruge, Variety
Naranjo, a graduate of the American Film Institute, has a gift for staging action that defines character. The film is a harrowing experience. It cuts deep.
-Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
Poignant et terriblement prenant.
