Zola publie en 1898 l'article «J'accuse» dans L'Aurore, pour dénoncer l'incroyable erreur judiciaire portée à l'encontre d'Alfred Dreyfus. L' "affaire" a divisé la France pendant 12 ans, et a révélé l'anti-sémitisme qui sévissait alors.
Ce texte est le modèle le plus célèbre d'un appel à la justice des hommes par la seule force des mots et de la presse…
An 'essayistic' documentary in which Greenaway's fierce criticism of today's visual illiteracy is argued by means of a forensic search of Rembrandt's Nightwatch. Greenaway explains the background, the context, the conspiracy, the murder and the motives of all its thirty-four painted characters who have conspired to kill for their combined self-advantage. Greenaway leads us through Rembrandt's paintings into seventeenth-century Amsterdam. He paints a world that is democratic in principle, but is almost entirely ruled by twelve families. The notion exists of these regents as charitable and compassionate entities. However, reality was different.
Damien Saez is a French singer/songwriter who first studied music — piano — at the Conservatoire National de Région de Dijon before signing to Island/Universal in 1999. Influenced by classic rock artists such as Led Zeppelin, the Sex Pistols, and U2, as well as '90s giants Jeff Buckley, Blur, and Radiohead, Saez — born in Savoy, France on August 1, 1977 — recorded and released his first album, Jours Étranges, late in 1999, and the collection sold well and earned him quite a good number of plaudits. "J'accuse" is his fifth album. Highly recommended for catchy melodies, angry guitars and percussion.
