WHAT DOES THE PRESS THINK?

The Parisian : A masterful fiction and of rare accuracy on this drama which marked society, becoming a symbol of police violence.

5/5

Le Figaro : Far from the clumsiness of A French Affair which melodramatized the Gregory affair for TF1, Chevrollier leaves no room for approximation and artistic licence. (…) Where the editing, formidable, skilfully plays with frames and cutaways, with for example this final concert by Malik which infuses a surprising modernity into this fiction which refuses the temptation of sepia. A welcome modernity, symbolic in any case, to prevent this affair from leaving our memories.

4.5/5

The world : By detailing for four hours during the circumstances and the consequences of the death of Malik Oussekine under the blows of the police of the motorized acrobats platoon, Antoine Chevrollier does much more than exhume a forgotten, misunderstood or distorted story. (…) He places the Oussekine affair in the long history of misunderstandings, hatred, betrayals and moments of solidarity which is that of immigrant communities in France, and more particularly of the Algerian community.

The echoes : The result is a fully successful fiction, both in its production and in the acting, subtly plunging the viewer into the heart of this state scandal and this legal storm, where the guilty will only be recognized after several years. (…) Through the life, memories and disillusions of the Oussekine family, it is a whole section of French history that we explore again, like this reconstruction of the massacre of October 1961, where Algerian demonstrators were thrown into the Seine by police. Or how to continue to tell, despite the years, so as never to forget.

First : Without taboos or restraint, the series does not hesitate to stage the manipulations of the State to cover up what was a real unspeakable racist blunder. A crime which, we understand, almost triggered the same kind of riots in France as those which have shaken the United States in recent years. As such, Oussekine advances as a necessary series, a testimony that will have taken 40 years to reach us with all its meaning.

Telerama : Perfect example of a series of general interest, educational, moving, documented and committed, which one would expect on a public service channel (…) Four uplifting episodes but full of modesty, between duty of memory and attempt at reconciliation, which ‘Antoine Chevrollier let it mature for many years.
