“I don’t understand how you can make a film about such a tragedy, I guess the parents give their consent,” comments one user.
“If I had been the parents I would have refused this film”, “As parents I would have forbidden the distribution of this film, but they must have given their consent and in fact we know everything about this story. “
However, the victim’s family, and not even the offender, cannot prohibit a fiction based on their history. It cannot declare itself if the content is defamatory.
Parents of the victim wrote a book on the tragic event. This is called “Alessia, our daughter”. However, “The Daval Mystery” didn’t rely on their book. The TV film is written according to the work of journalists Christophe Dubois and Laurent Briot: “The Alexia Daval Affair, the true story”.
For good reason, this book contains the testimony of all the protagonists of the case. However, the Fouillot family did not comment the distribution of the film. Furthermore, their agreement was not required for its production.
“The Daval Mystery” angered people
Americans are used to it report social facts and dramas. However, the fictions on the subject are still new to the French. This is why TF1 collides with public reluctance.
It is not the first time. Chain has already received several reviews from“A French affair”, the fiction about the murder of Gregory Villemin. However, the production wanted to retry the experiment “The Daval Mystery” and the murder of Alexia Daval.
Internet users wanted to comment as soon as they learned about the broadcast of the TV movie. Many have called this design a“indecent” and of ” ashamed “. The most pointed selfish and immoral act parents who want to make money on such a morbid drama.
Here’s what some netizens think:
“No, I won’t look at death money”, “I don’t see the point other than making money…”, “It’s all to make more money! »,« We know the story !!!! We will put a layer on it, we wonder who benefits from it… .. I have my little idea…. »,« TF1 you have no dignity, to make a film about the Daval affair… all good to monetize. “
Some I just don’t want to watch such a disturbing film. Many were outraged, as what, it would still be too early for the case. Others just don’t care about the story. Others find the TV movie to be too “Indecent for families”.
However, another person will say anyway :
«There will be a fiction about the Daval affair … What voyeurism, what a shameful use of a drama that has moved the whole of France … Of course I’ll watch it! “
