Police

year: 1985

colour: yes

certificate: 15

director: Maurice Pialat

runtime: 113

Crime/ Drama As might be expected in a film co-scripted by Catherine Breillat, Pialat shows less interest in the thriller aspect of the police genre than in the intense relationship between Depardieu’s tough cop and Marceau’s beautiful and manipulative thief. Pialat casts a hard eye on police procedure, and an even harder one on the amour fou at the film’s centre. Ciné Lumière
