The interpreter of Jeff Tuche will give the answer to Kim Higelin, the granddaughter of Jacques Higelin. She will play Vanessa Springora as a teenager.

Change of register for the interpreter of Jeff Tuche: Jean-Paul Rouve will play Gabriel Matzneff in a film adaptation of Consent, in which the editor Vanessa Springora questioned the writer for his sexual relations with minors.

The young actress Kim Higelin, the granddaughter of Jacques Higelin, will play Vanessa Springora as a teenager. Vanessa Filho, noted director of Angel Face, with Marion Cotillard, is in charge of this film, which will begin shooting in February 2022, according to information from Satellifax, relayed by The Parisian.

“Vanessa Filho will realize this story where Vanessa Springora tells how she found herself under the influence of a famous writer. In 1986, she was 13 years old; he, almost 50”, summed up in a press release producers Marc Missonnier and Carole Lambert.

“The drifts of an era”

“She explains how she was the victim of a triple predation: sexual, literary and psychic”, they add. “But beyond her individual history, she also questions the excesses of an era, and the complacency of an environment blinded by talent and celebrity.”

On the court side, the Matzneff case is ongoing. Latest episode to date: the Paris Court of Appeal confirmed at the beginning of October the annulment for procedural reasons of a trial against the writer Gabriel Matzneff for “apology” of child crime, initiated by the association the Blue Angel.
