As the title of this French crime melodrama indicates, there's always two sides to the story when murder is involved. The scene is a courtroom, where Louis (Michel Auclair) is on trial for murder. The prosecution claims that Louis deflowered the female victim, forced her into a sordid lifestyle, then murdered her when she was no longer useful to him. As the trial rolls on, a series of wildly contradictory flashbacks reconstruct the events leading to the crime. In short, this is Rashomon, French-style. Michel Simon steals the show as a dishevelled ex-lawyer who hopes to redeem himself by taking on Louis' case.
