Polisse (2011)

Directed by: Maiwenn
Country: France

Plot: A journalist covering police assigned to a juvenile division enters an affair with one of her subjects.
Quick comment: A gripping look at the lives of police officers working at the Juvenile Protection Unit. It is very interesting to watch the behavior of these people depending of the situation that might appear. Sometimes stern, sometimes frivolous, they just have to deal with all types of complaints and requests. The movie successfully shows the difficulty to separate such stressful work situations from private lives. A tense movie, relying on natural acting and unfolding harsh conclusions.
Relevant awards: Jury Prize (Cannes).
