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. Written by

now that is a good film..too much talk in the dialog, which is famous in the french cinema and drama in general ,but this time it was well used i was not bothered by it,it's stayed real,and dealing with a true realistic problem without exaggeration, presenting it as is- i felt like as if its a reality drama ,that a hidden camera was shooting a real life events not drama,that is success,the film is deep and subtle and its emotional too,acting is very well carried out... even by the minors who were interviewed and the children,i must emphasis on" Maïwenn's" acting ,it was very calm yet deep and superb."Joey starr" was good too in some moments though he was exaggerating in anger in others but over all good acting i say if you have a chance to go watch this film, please do it s worth it really.
