In this no-holds-barred look at the Paris drug squad, three very different cops - conventional Lulu (Didier Bezace), racist Dodo (Jean-Paul Comart) and tough Marie (Charlotte Kady) - go about their day-to-day business. Real, often dangerous locations were used in this controversial film from the director of `Life and Nothing But' and `Sunday in the Country'.

At times some of the characters threaten to stray into cop movie clichés, such as Didier Bezace's relationship with a prostitute and casual informer, and there's a subplot with wedding videos that the film could do without, but other than that there's little to find fault with. Tavernier's direction is at once convincingly observational while remaining unobtrusively cinematic and he's assembled an equally convincing ensemble cast, including Philippe Torreton, who would go on to play leading roles in Tavernier's Capitaine Conan and It All Starts Today.Read more ›
This isn't a bad film, it holds no punches and is quite avant garde, as it has a sort of "fly on the wall" documentary feel about it, with bits where we see them in the office working, and out on the streets. Charlotte Kady as Marie has to be my favourite character, though most of them were not really likeable; especially Dodo.
Some of the best bits have to come from conversations Lulu has with the call girl Cecile.
This isn't a bad DVD with a full widescreen view, which is sometimes unusual. There are not many extras on this edition, so if you're feeling brave get the French edition for this, though some of the language is not easy to understand as it's unusual slang.
Worth a look, check out Coup De Torchon [DVD] as well.
