Gerard Depardieu has deemed Abel Ferrara's 'Welcome to New York', a fictionalized depiction of the Dominique Strauss-Kahn sexual assault case as a "Shakespearean Tragedy".


The film, starring Depardieu and Jacqueline Bisset, was played to a packed house on Carlton Beach Friday night, where French producer/distributor Wild Bunch held a special VOD screening of the film for journalists, the Hollywood Reporter reported.

Despite the graphic sex scenes, the film is a largely balanced portrait of DSK, depicting the former head of the IMF as an egotistical sex addict and would-be rapist but not an inhuman monster. It leaves no doubt, however, to his guilt and even suggests he got off by means of bribery.

In a press conference following the screening, Depardieu called the film "a Shakespearean tragedy" that was "all about money, sex and power" and "the puppets who play games with money."
