Ni juge, ni soumise

Contemporary Lives

(Francia, Belgio / 2017 / 100’)

Ironic, eccentric and outspoken, Anne Gruwez is a belgian judge with a great experience on her shoulders. Everyday, sitting at her desk, Anne listens to many depositions about horrible crimes, looking her “clients” in the eyes, hearing their stories - most of the time devastating but sometimes they hide a comic twist. Ni juge, ni soumise follows her step by step in her job, observing how she relates with her colleagues and associates. It also follows the extraordinary and unconventional belgian justice system, dragging us in a dark world made of crimes,  threats and murders.
