Product Description

Product Description

Director, Olivier Marchal is a former Parisian policeman, and the story of 36 Quai des Orfevres draws on his own experiences of the police force, as well as those of Dominique Loiseau, who was a senior member of the BRI (Search and action Squad) in the mid-eighties and worked as a consultant on the film.

Leo Vrinks (Auteuil) and Denis Klein (Depardieu) are at the head of two different departments of the Paris police force, located at Quai des Orfevres. Once close, they are no longer friends, mainly due to their differing work methods and Vrinks' wife, Camille.

An audacious gang of robbers stage seven armed robberies throughout Paris leaving a bloody trail in their wake. After a year of terror, the Chief of Police orders that Vrinks and Klein bring the criminals to justice with a substantial boon to the man who brings them in... His job. As the competition between the two men hots up, the lines between right and wrong become blurred. Both men find themselves sinking into a hellish place not far removed from that of the criminals...

Format: Blu-ray
Former cop Olivier Marchal's classy French policier has in its favour it has two great performers on top form in Daniel Auteuil and, especially, Gerard Depardieu (who gives surprising depth to what appears to be a seriously underwritten part consisting mainly of troubled glances) and the neatest set of moral bear traps to face a movie cop since the original Insomnia as the two veterans compete for a promotion held out as the prize for bringing in a dangerous gang of armed robbers with disastrous consequences. Yet while the performances are strong and the script better than average for the genre, the musical score is a major problem that unfortunately works so strongly against the film that it ends up drowning many of its good points. It's not that the main theme is bad, but does it HAVE to be used without variation in almost every single scene in the last two thirds of the picture? Sadly, this is by no means an exaggeration, and the repetition does the film no favours.

A US remake with a no-doubt sleepwalking Robert De Niro has long been in the offing, but while you're waiting, Tartan's BluRay boasts a decent 2.35:1 widescreen transfer, though for no good reason the removeable subtitles are presented over the image area rather than in the black border below. Worse, while the BluRay offers a good selection of extras carried over from the DVD release (including an exclusive 9-minute interview with the director), the making of documentary and trailers have absurdly had the image reduced so that even using the zoom option on the TV settings wouldn't make the image reach the sides of many a fullscreen TV set let alone a widescreen one. No new extras have been added for the UK BluRay, with Marchal's audio commentary, the 69-minute documentary and other extras from the more comprehensive French 2-disc DVD release (which only has English subtitles on the feature itself) still missing.

As one should expect in general with European movies, they are far better from any other production, especially the US ones. A gripping thriller, tough and very well structured in terms of screenplay and cinematography. The main actors are at the height of their acting careers with such realistic performances. Running almost 2 hours, the movie will challenge the viewer til its epic end.

French cinema is historically related to crime and noir, but this film represented the real rebirth and return of that genre, after the glorious tradition of Melville and others, and thr action oriented new wave that started with Luc Besson. It took an ex cop, who directs and writes his films, to let the world rediscover this tradition. And it is a real and powerful refresh, which is perfectly embodied by 36. All the films which will follow, will basically take this approach, dark, disenchanted, intimate, essential but tragic. French cinema has also got wonderful faces, and here it is a kind of best of their actors, from Depardieu to Auteil to Dussolier. Some comes from comedy, others from drama, but they all look very comfortable in dirty cops shoes. A film that proudly relaunch the french way to crime, with very good action that, however, does not prevail on storytelling and characters (and the plot, here, is truly engaging) and avoids what came before, with Besson and his disciples: to merely make european films that look like american hollywood stuff.

Brilliant acting performances from the leading actors Daniel Auteil, Gérard Depardieu and Valeria Golino in a gripping, fast paced policier drama were there are blurred lines between the criminals and the police detectives. Well worth watching twice to get the subtle nuances in dialogue.

This film shows that Hollywood could learn a lot about subtlety used for a better punch into an action film.

Thouroughly enjoyed this move. Bought it on a whim as I've seen a few French thrillers of late and found them to be mostly enjoyable. Gerard D' in fine despicable form. Nicely tied up at the end. If you enjoyed Mesrine, you should like this.

I watch this film on a regular basis and I am totally overwhelmed by the performance of both the protagonists.
