The Devil's Advocate

Synopsis

This film tells what goes on behind the scenes of the trial of famous Belgian serial killer Marc Dutroux. His main attorney, who wanted to “tell the truth and nothing but the truth” on Dutroux’s case found himself isolated between the monstrosity of his client, the suffering of its victims, an incomplete preliminary investigation and a more than imperfect trial. Playing the part of the devil’s advocate, of the procurator of Belgian society or that of spokesman for the victims, he threw himself wholeheartedly in this battle. Will the man and the attorney come out of this ordeal with permanent wounds or with a clear conscience?
