DSK's comeback interview: repentant, or ham actor?

Monday's French papers only have eyes for one man - Dominique Strauss-Kahn, after his ratings-busting TV interview last night. They don't all seem to have watched the same interview though - some praise his honesty, while others denounce it as ham acting.

Le Figaro has plenty of time for Mr Strauss-Kahn's televised semi-apology, even saying that if you don't sympathise with him, you must have a heart of stone.

Liberation is a little more neutral - saying that much of the interview looked scripted and insincere.

L'Express asks its journalists to rate his performance out of 20 - and the marks vary from 8 to 17.

Meanwhile, Le Nouvel Observateur polls the views of those who have become actors in this drama, from Jack Lang to Tristane Banon's mother - who, unsurprisingly, hardly seem to have watched the same interview either.
