06-05-2024 15:00

Gerard Depardieu is a French actor. He is very famous. Many people like him very much.

But the man has problems. He will go to court in October. Some women say that he hurts them. It happens when he is making a movie in 2021. The actor keeps saying that he does nothing wrong. But police are checking another similar problem from 2018.

The problem divides people in France. Some people believe the man. They say that he is a great man. Other people say that the problem with sexual attacks in France is much bigger.

Difficult words: famous (when many people know someone), divide (separate into parts), sexual attack (when a person wants to have sex with someone but they do not agree).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What are the opinions of French citizens regarding Gerard Depardieu's legal issues?
