Tony is admitted to a rehabilitation center after a serious skiing accident. Dependent of medical staff and painkillers, she takes the time to remember the tumultuous love story she lived with Georgio.
A genuine and often funny depiction of the relationships between monitors and children in a summer vacation camp. From romance to friendship, dancing to fighting, this French movie bring back good souvenirs of childhood.
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
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 »

Except for a few documentaries there has not been a movie that pictures the life and work of Investigators of the vice squat as well as this one. Of course there is a lot of added drama but that's why it's a movie and not a documentary. For anyone though that can enjoy a Slice of Life of this profession.
Where they get the actors and the extra's I don't know but they are so genuinely convincing that you could easily feel like watching a documentary. The story lines are confrontational and there is no smoothing it over like any CSI episode. Although it doesn't have a big storyline it draws you in. The interaction, the dynamics and the characters are more than worth it to watch this.
Bar none the best police movie in ages.
