Here is yet another twist in “the case of Ozon”. The feature-length film that tells the story of former scouts assault victims pedophiles on the part of father Bernard Preynat has been assigned, referred to a couple of times. First, by the counsel of the man of faith, but on Monday the tribunal de grande instance of Paris rejected the request for postponement of the release of the film Thanks to God . And then by Roberta Mayor, who wished to remove his surname. Here also, the tribunal de grande instance of Lyon has rejected Tuesday the demand of the former volunteer of the diocese of Lyon. The film will be released so in the gym on Wednesday. Back on the facts.
The formal notice of Régine Mayor to remove his name rejected
Lay volunteer of the diocese of Lyon, Régine Mayor is currently considered to sides of cardinal Barbarin for “non-denunciation of sexual assault”, those of the Father Preynat on the young scouts until 1986. In 2015, these scouts have created the association “free Speech”. François Ozon has decided, in his film Thanks to God , to listen to and represent three of the 85 alleged victims played by Melvil Poupaud, Denis Ménochet and Swann Arlaud.

In 2014, Roberta Mayor, embodied by Martine Erhel in Thanks to God , was originally a meeting between the priest controversial and Alexandre Herez, one of the founders of the association of lyon, before he files a complaint. Mentioned several times in the film, the applicant has discovered in the press that his name had been used. It is on this point that she and her lawyer have decided to give notice to the filmmaker. “For the victims, they have used an assumed name”, regretted Me Xavier Vahramian, who pointed out to the AFP in early February that his client has also demanded “to see the movie” before its release, to know the exact role attributed to him in Thanks to God .
“Thanks be to God”, the film by François Ozon, which should come out tomorrow in cinemas, has been awarded the Silver Bear at the Berlinale festival last Saturday. Jean-Claude Moireau/March Film
last Thursday, François Ozon has given us have been surprised by this approach. “Régine Mayor has seen the movie at the home of our lawyers, when I was in Berlin. I can’t speak for her but I hope that the film has calmed his fears. She does the best she can to the place that is hers. People find that it is a very good listener. What the embarrassment, it is his name to be quoted, but all that says is transcript. All the emails had already been published on the website of The free Speech so I am not inventing anything. There is no attack on private life, nor on the presumption of innocence. It shows in public and in professional. Ask the journalists who have followed the case, there is no scoop. One learns things about the victims, not on other protagonists of the story.”
