Storyline

The daily grind for the cops of the Police Department's Juvenile Protection Unit - taking in child molesters, busting underage 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 cops 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.

Trivia

The French word for Police is spelled and said the same as in English. The title "Polisse" sounds like "police" and it is written as a child would do (the film is about the Youth Crime Squad in Paris). See more »

Awesome

An authentic gem. A real one. Not a thriller nor a crime movie. Actually, this amazing feature reminds me Xavier Beauvois' LE PETIT LIEUTENANT, released in 2005. The real picture, poignant, terrific life of the daily procedural life of cops. Here, it is the child protection squad; a bunch of men and women who fight against child molesters, people who sometimes rape their own children !!! Policemen and women who have to face the ugliness, the most disgusting side of the real life. In this film, you cry, laugh, feel your heart under pressure when watching this wonderful performance given by the actors, so close to reality. Yes, the characters, and not only the cops, look real ones. A powerful, vivid movie that may give you the feeling to be hit by an express train.

The ending is really awful, but I won't tell you more. Go and see this masterpiece. Now!!!
