Maïwenn | France | 2011 | 128mins | Karin Viard, Joey Starr, Marina Foïs, Nicolas Duvauchelle, Maïwenn Director, writer and actor Maïwenn's Polisse
Director, writer and actor Maïwenn's Polisse (winner of the 2011 Cannes Jury Prize) depicts the fascinating activities of the Child Protection Unit in Paris.
Maïwenn plays Melissa, a photojournalist commissioned to document their work, and sees first-hand how their work aims to save society's most innocent from its worst crimes. We watch as tension builds and the unit is pushed to its limit - and Maïwenn becomes inextricably involved.
“Like a whole season of The Wire packed into a single film” Jonathan Mintzer, Hollywood Reporter
