Inspecteur Levasseur (Miou-Miou) tries too much. When you're doing this job, there's a certain line that you can't cross. Don't put on a fight against the real big guns: powerful businessman with ties to the political world. Inspecteur Levasseur must do her job without entering this inner-sanctum. So when the bad guys are off to do their old tricks again, what does Inspecteur Levasseur do? Does she close her eyes, pretending not to see anything so she can keep her job? Or does she go full steam ahead? Or why not just quit? The decision is all Inspecteur Levasseur to make.
This movie reminds me of Adieu, poulet. Instead of Vergeat, we have here Inspecteur Levasseur, confronted with her destiny. It's truly a genre that was well explored by French cinéastes in the 60's, 70's and 80's.
Miou-Miou is good, if just a bit too stoic.
Out of 100, I gave it 74. That's good for **½ out of ****.
Seen at home, in Toronto, on January 17th, 2004.
