Polisse (2011, 127 min.) by Maïwenn Le Besco with Sara Paretsky, author of best-selling series V.I Warshawski
In French with English subtitles.
Winner of the Jury Prize at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival, Polisse follows the daily lives of a tight-knit team of men and women working in the Child Protection Unit of the Parisian police. Basing her richly textured script on real child investigation cases, writer-director actor Maïwenn has gathered an accomplished ensemble cast of French actors who convey the emotional strain of the unit's work with gritty realism.
