Polisse

Rated NR 127 minutes 2012

The Child Protection Unit of the Paris, France police department crashes around investigating crimes, usually sexual, against children. This stressful policier assumes the shape of a string of unhappy vignettes, with distressed families galore and a squad of steamed flics chasing a child-prostitution ring, incestuous parents, naughty teenagers, etc. Plenty of acting opportunities for Karin Viard, Emmanuelle Bercot, Frédéric Pierrot, Sandrine Kiberlain, and the rest of the high-powered cast, with nervous direction by actress-turned-filmmaker Maïwenn, who also plays a role in the action. Will be hard to take for most auds but is definitely worthwhile, on a subject mainstream Hollywood wouldn’t touch with a barge pole. The screenplay is by Maï and actress Bercot. (129 min.)
