Female cop story
24 March 2007 | by See all my reviews

At the time,in the French cinema,women were joining the Police at an alarming speed .Miou-Miou was a credible female cop.She investigates a young girl's death.She brings to light a pedophilia network ,in which the local VIPs are involved .And the local Commissaire provides them with protection...

The subject was not that much frequent in the early eighties ,but Boisset's work is not as strong as his early militant works ("RAS" and "Dupont-Lajoie" ) or his powerful follow-up "Allons z'Enfants" .

The most interesting element is not the detective side of the story.It's the cop's relationship with the young people of the YM(W)CA.When they discover what her job is ,they look at her with disgust (typically post-68 attitude)."Keep on scoffing your Choucroute(sauerkraut),the police woman says,I've got more important things to do."
