Polanski is not facing any legal action in France over this alleged rape since the country has a 20-year statute of limitation. But Monnier said she was moved to speak out now due to the release of Polanski's latest film, An Officer and a Spy (J'Accuse), which hits cinemas in France next week where Gaumont will give it a wide release. The movie world premiered at the Venice Film Festival where it won the Silver Lion Grand Jury Prize and earned mostly positive reviews.

"I denounce this crime knowing that there can't be any punishment, in an attempt to end exceptions, impunity. Public figures are being considered as models. By sacralising the guilty ones, we prevent people from realising the serious consequences of their acts," added Monnier.

Polanski has been living in exile in France since fleeing the U.S. in 1978, before he could be sentenced on a charge of raping a 13-year-old girl. Numerous efforts over the years to resolve the case with Los Angeles prosecutors have gone nowhere, as Polanski has refused to return and submit to US jurisdiction.

Monnier told Le Parisien that she didn't know Polanski personally when she agreed to go skiing at his chalet with a group of friends in the winter of 1975. After dinner one evening, she said Polanski called her upstairs. "Life had not trained me to be suspicious," she told the paper. When she got upstairs, she said Polanski was naked. He attacked her, hit her and ripped off her clothes, before raping her, she claims.

Polanski's French attorney, Herve Temime, told the paper that the filmmaker strongly denies the allegations. Temime said he deplored the publication of the allegations — 44 years after the fact — on the eve of the release of Polanski's film.

The selection of Polanski's film at Venice and its subsequent win had sparked a backlash to which Samantha Geimer, the woman Polanski raped in 1975 when she was 13, reacted with a tweet congratulating the helmer.

"For all those who insult, degrade and use me, who tweet about my statutory rape as if it is porn, excited to use vulgar words, excited by your hatred. Congratulations to Roman," wrote Geimer.

Polanski himself had reacted to the backlash in an interview published in the press notes of A Soldier and a Spy which triggered even more criticism. Comparing himself to his film's protagonist, Captain Alfred Dreyfus, the French-Jewish officer who was unfairly accused of spying for Germany in the late 1890s, Polanski said "I can see the same determination to deny the facts and condemn me for things I have not done."
