    Featuring stories from real CPU case files, Polisse is a fascinating look at those who live their lives working to protect children. You care about these people and you root for them. When they celebrate, you want to celebrate and when they cry, you want to cry.

    Ho provato a finire di vederlo, ma alla scena della giovane poliziotta magrebina, paladina della giustizia, contro il vecchio musulmano integralista, padre-padrone, ho ceduto.
    Non reggo due ore di solfa educativa e luoghi comuni su questa accattivante squadra di polizia, in cui talvolta ci si prende a male parole, però alla fine è come una grande famiglia stile medici di E.R. ma senza bisturi e con pistole e manette.

    A really in depth look at child protection. Some scenes were hard to watch being a parent. It definitely makes you think at some of the traumatic cases that happen daily to innocent children. Saddening

    The shopping mall scene aside, this feels like a very genuine, honest, challenging, and well meant film. It tackles a difficult subject matter in a warm way. The rapport shared by the 'team' seems authentic. And it ends on a real surprise. Clearly the work of a highly talented director.

    A raw, hard to watch captivating masterpiece of French cinema. The quasi Doc style filming brings the viewer into the workings of the Paris Child Protection agency in which actual stories are acted out. If anyone has read the book Homicide by David Simon this film replicates the looseness of that book, how we only see some cases for a little some have a conclusion and some dont, how the job affects some and not others.
    The performances all feel…

    Second time watch and still as disturbing and important. I highly recommend watching this movie to everyone who can handle the topic. It's outstanding.

    When I first saw it:

    This frenzied, hectic drama about the horrific work of the Paris police's Child Protection Unit, and the ways that horror impacts on the private lives of the unit members, is a masterwork. It's not pleasant, indeed I spent half the running time wanting to shut my eyes, but at the same time it's so rivetting, so compelling, that I couldn't tear my eyes away. The verite style is a perfect match for the subject matter,…

    Some entertaining and provoking moments but hampered by overwrought emotions.
