The husband who just cried onscreen for the death of his wife, Alexia, was actually the murderer. However, netizens were outraged. They think it’s still a lot ” too early “. They also criticize this chain voyeurism and his “financial incentive”.

“The Daval Mystery” is it faithful to the real facts?

“The Daval Mystery” is a TV movie directed by Christophe Lamotte. Its ambition is to retrace the Daval affair. It describes the event that took place on October 27 and 28, 2017 when Alexia Daval, reported missing, was found dead in the woodsthe body half burnt.

This shocking story is still highly publicized. She will even have succeeded in shocking the parents of the victim and all the French people. Indeed, after several twists and turns in the case, the husband broke down and confessed that he killed his wife. His act will have earned him 25 years of criminal imprisonment.

Viewers will be able to watch the drama with another eye, with well-known actors. Alexia Daval will be played by Maud Baecker. Actor Liam Baty will play the role of her husband Jonathan Daval. Michèle Bernier and Jérôme Anger will slip into the role of the parents of the victim, Isabelle and Jean-Pierre Caillot.

The interpreter of the victim of the caseMaud Baecker, said:

“We have tried to be as close as possible to reality. This is the adaptation of a book by two journalists who followed the case. There is no bias or extrapolation. The idea was to show as rigorously as possible the progress of this investigation. »

The actress dreads all the same the reactions of relatives and viewers on this very real drama.

The Daval family therefore accepted the broadcast?

Many have criticized the Fouillot couple (Alexia’s parents) for the broadcast of the TV movie. Internet users think that the Daval family should have oppose the realization of such a film about their private life.

“I don’t understand how you can make a film about such a tragedy, I guess the parents give their consent,” comments a user.

Others add:

“If I had been the parents, I would have refused this film”, “As parents, I would have prohibited the distribution of this film, but they must have given their consent and in fact we know everything about this story. »

However, the family of the victim, nor even the convict, cannot prohibit a fiction based on their story. It cannot declare itself if the content is defamatory.

The victim’s parents wrote a book about the tragic event. This one is called “Alexia, our daughter”. However, “The Daval Mystery” did not rely on their book. The TV movie is written according to the work of journalists Christophe Dubois and Laurent Briot: “The Alexia Daval Affair, the real story”.

For good reason, this book contains the testimony of all the protagonists in the case. However, the Fouillot family did not comment on the distribution of the film. Moreover, their agreement was not required for its production.

Internet users were keen to comment as soon as they learned of the broadcast of the TV movie. Many have called this design a“indecent” and of ” ashamed “. Most pointed selfish and immoral act parents who want to make money on such a morbid drama.

Here’s what some netizens think:

“No, I won’t look at the money on death”, “I don’t see the point apart from making money…”, “It’s all to make more money! », « We know the story !!!! We’re going to put a layer on it, we wonder who benefits from it….. I have my little idea…. », « TF1 you have no dignity, to make a film on the Daval affair… everything is good to monetize. »

Some just don’t want to watch such a disturbing film. Many were indignant, like what, it would still be too early for the case. The others just don’t care about the story. Others find that the tv movie is too much “indecent for families”.

However, another nobody will say anyway :

“There’s going to be a fiction about the Daval affair… What voyeurism, what shameful use of a drama that moved the whole of France… Of course I’m going to watch! »
