Polisse - Preview & trailer
Preview by Jack Foley
THE daily grind for the police officers of the Child Protection Unit – taking in child molesters, busting under-age pickpockets and chewing over relationship issues at lunch; interrogating abusive parents, taking statements from children, confronting the excesses of teen sexuality, enjoying solidarity with colleagues and laughing uncontrollably at the most unthinkable moments.
Knowing the worst exists and living with it, how do these police officers balance their private lives and the reality they confront every working day?
Fred, the group’s hypersensitive wild card, is going to have a hard time facing the scrutiny of Melissa, a photographer on a Ministry of the Interior assignment to document the unit.
Directed by Maiwenn and starring Karin Viard and Joey Starr, Poliss has been described by The Hollywood Reporter as being “like an entire season of The Wire packed into a single film”.
Polisse is released on DVD by Artificial Eye on Monday, October 29, 2012.
