The promotion of "J'accuse" Roman Polanski's latest film is put on hold due to alledged rape accusations

 
 
While an Officer and a Spy (J'Accuse) will be released this wednesday, the publicty of the film has been put on hold, and the scheduled appearances of lead actorJean Dujardin on TF1 this week end has been cancelled.
 
The distributor and Roman Polanski are reacting to the recent publication in a daily about the testimony of Valentine Monnier, accusing Roman Polanski of a sexual agression in 1975.
 
The whole publicity campaign is now on hold and the director has officially announced considering legal actions.
He denies this accusation "with the greatest firmness".
 
His film won jury prize in Venice and is one of the most nominated films at the coming European Film Awards where it received EFA nominations for Director, Actor and Screenwriter.
 
This could be a hard blow for the film's campaign, I am estimating the damage, it could cost as much as 25% of the box office.
 
I have experienced during my distributor's career a similar event though not linked to sexual assault which cost the film by Lelouch probably 500 000 tickets by spectators and did not want to give Bernard Tapie the 3 francs share of box office which his contract stated for his role in Homme Femme Mode d'Emploi.
