L'affaire Christian Ranucci: Le combat d'une mère (2007)Crime, Drama, History · 24 January 2007
For many French people, he is the symbol of one of the most awful justice failure ever known. For others, he was a criminal who received the punishment he deserved. 27 years after "Le Püll-Over Rouge", "Une mère", which simply means "A mother", shows the fight of Mrs Héloïse Mathon to prove her son Christian Ranucci was indeed innocent of the crime he was executed for. Christian Ranucci, 20, was arrested for the murder of Marie-Dolorès Rambla, an eight-year-old girl in June 1974. Though it remained many questions about his guilt, he was sentenced to die on March 10th, 1976 and guillotined in Marseilles on July 28th, 1976. After his death, only two other men were executed in France.
