Polisse

After spending time working with real police officers, actor-director Maïwenn turned her experiences into this stunning Cannes Jury Prize winning film, investigating child molesters, teen prostitutes and abusive parents. Trying to infiltrate this dangerous, murky world is a passionate, dedicated team of cops who will risk everything to uncover the truth. But as tensions rise and emotions reach boiling point some facts will become too difficult to bear. Brutal, shocking and incredibly powerful, this close-up examination of the intricate workings of a police Child Protection Unit is a hard-hitting and bitingly realistic slice of complex, heart-stopping cinema in the same vein as ‘The Wire’ and ‘Spiral’.
