Synopsis

When Melissa is brought in to photograph the harrowing details of life in the Child Protection Unit of the Paris police, she is an outsider amongst a close-knit family of cops. Brought together by their emotionally devastating work, officers squabble and play jokes over communal lunches.

MUBI's take

Frequently compared to the TV series The Wire for its multi-layered narrative, this crime hit from French actress Maïwenn (who directs, writes, and stars in the film!) confirmed her as a major talent to follow. Social realist cinema has rarely been as healthy and exciting as in recent times.
