Audience Reviews for L.627

Great documentary style police drama from Bertrand Tavernier. It's a gritty study of a Paris drug squad where the police are just as corrupt as the criminals. There's not much of a story, just a series of events, which leads to it's only downfall, the fact that it's slightly too long, and with no actual storyline it can feel like it's dragging on at times.
