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. Written by Anonymous

Best police movie i have seen in years!
14 April 2012 | by MdlndeHondSee all my reviews

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.
