Polisse

[15]

2011, 128 mins
Director: Maiwenn Le Besco

French actress Maïwenn (THE FIFTH ELEMENT) stars in and directs this Cannes Jury Prize-winning drama, which follows a Child Protection Unit in one of the toughest arrondissements in Paris.

Maïwenn plays Mélissa, a photojournalist assigned to capture the unit's daily routine, and what it takes to live day in, day out dealing with harrowing acts of child abuse. Compassionate and sensitive, POLISSE is a very human portrait of the men and women who dedicate themselves to protecting innocent lives, often at the cost of their personal relationships.

It is tender, too, the ensemble cast sharing a warm chemistry that provides some surprising moments of light-hearted respite.
