The French drama is a gritty and intimate look at big-city detectives that had me wondering what the French word for "wire" is.

...a tough and mostly rewarding ride, sort of like a full season of a novelistic cable drama like The Wire compressed into a two-hour serving ...

Bluntly edited, with no hand-holding transitional scenes, the film is an intimate portrait of an idealistic, understaffed, sometimes wrongheaded team battling youth prostitution, thievery rings and adult predators from every class of society.

An urgent, fly-on-the-wall affair that plays out like a grittier big-screen take on its more famous, US TV-related cousins.

The performances are uniformly excellent, but the charismatic rapper Joeystarr is particularly impressive as an idealistic, insubordinate cop with a short fuse.

It's a well-done film, but also leaves me a little cold, even as I admire the way Ma´wenn is willing to forego most of the stock button-pushing moments of the typical police drama.

It's like the French version of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, except every case is one that would send Detective Elliot Stabler totally mental and inspire him to punch a wall or two.

"Polisse" draws us uncomfortably close to a taboo subject then rewards us with real nourishment.

So amorphous, volatile and multi-plotted it could be a rough cut.

Maiwenn's third feature walks the line between docudrama and melodrama, but is grounded by horror all too human.

Impressively directed, powerfully moving and frequently shocking fly-on-the-wall French police drama with a strong script and terrific performances from a fine ensemble cast.
