Carl confirmed that the Pistorius family were not contacted by the producers of the movie, saying: "The title sounds like the movie was made with a bias to the producers".

In a statement on Tuesday, they said the film, to be released next month, was "a gross misrepresentation of the truth".

"They are horrified and upset to read that the movie is perceived to be told from Reeva and her mother's perspective".
