176 mins
7.2 / 10 (153)


A young couple live in a small town with their four-year-old daughter. The husband, a policeman, is so caught up in his work that he becomes increasingly alienated from his wife and daughter. It is only a matter of time before the conflicts within the family manifest themselves.

MUBI's take

With dazzling cinematography and meticulous mise-en-scène, The Police Officer’s Wife observes the domestic violence a wife suffers within a seemingly happy family of three. Constructed in 59 chapters, this Special Jury Prize winner in Venice is brutally honest yet piercingly powerful.
