Audience Reviews for Laetitia: Season 1

    Contrary to other user reviews, the first episode was not ultra-violent. No child actors were screamed at or abused in any way. The careful viewer can see that all screaming by adults was done while the child actors were off-camera, and that the child actors lying in their beds did not "hear" any rape violence, since that dialogue was added later in editing. This is a true-crime drama, and deals with its intense subject manner in a realistic and highly professional manner. I've only seen one episode, but so far, it has been excellent.

    Wanted to like--thought I'd love--but quite boring and snail's pace draggy. Episode 1 what impacted me most is that Laetitia itself, as a series, is grossly violent. I'm not violence-shy, per se, but director de Lestrade uses violence as an assault aimed at the viewers for...what reason? which crime did we commit to have earned the director's artless smacking in the face, pushing our face in the dirt, as if to say "SEE how violent you've become? And in case you idiots don't get it I'll model it some more." Starting with shaky quasi-home-movie camera shots of 1.5-year-old twin girls screaming in utter anguish, arms helplessly flailing, red-faced and covered in tears, absolutely wrecked--their middle-aged brute of a father bellowing directly in one of the infant's faces--hanging the other off a balcony by her foot while shouting degrading epithets and threats at her. Really? Does the director truly believe we are so inured to violence and/or such "uncareful viewers" that we wouldn't have gotten his point unless he delivered it in such a ham-handed way? (i.e., "The Man Is Very Very Bad, Twisted, And Violent and Shouldn't Be Near Children"). Later we see the traumatized, terrified, weeping 4-year-old twin sitting awake, alone, "abandoned" in the dark, hearing their mother being violently raped in the next room. Later the raped woman staggers bewildered in a parking lot in state of undress, beaten, strangled, entire body a fresh bruise, one eye gouged out the other a blacked hole. Later another unhinged white male yells at the top of his lungs at a cop who accused him of raping his male cellmate with a broom. This isn't art. This isn't politics (heavy-handed or otherwise) or insights into white male rage or whatever redeeming qualities it's supposed to have. Its violence is definitively gratuitous and the direction both punitive and self-indulgent. All of what I say above is so--even despite any possible protestations of other reviewers who apparently may have hopped on RT to create accounts solely to refute reviews that aren't unconditionally positive about this series. As the series unfolds it loses some of its aggro violence but also just loses steam and drags and drags and drags.
