Dominique Marceau (Brigitte Bardot), a beautiful young woman, is on trial for the murder of her lover Gilbert Tellier (Sami Frey). As the hearings go on, the accused's true character comes to light. Henri-Georges Clouzot depicts a puritanical and hypocritical society that show no compassion for the monsters it creates. The result is a film of remarkable precision and ruthless irony in which Brigitte Bardot gives the performance of a lifetime.
