The 10th District Court is a film that's as effective as it is simple. The director and acclaimed photographer Raymond Depardon presents a series of episodes from inside a French courtroom filmed between May and July 2003, capturing the trial and judgement of 12 people accused of misdemeanours varying in severity from drink driving to the physical and mental abuse of a former lover. Each forms a compelling narrative in its own right, and together they provide a fascinating insight into the judicial system and the workings of the human mind under pressure. Year of release in Britain: 2006
