Audience Reviews for Police

Maurice Pialat is known for making even the most grand cinematic ideas feel small and accidental. The meaning of his work embraces you after you've had time to digest what you've seen. This film was well received in its day. Sophie Marceau is solid and stunningly beautiful. And, Gerard Depardieu is just about at the end of his sex symbol days. All of this makes for some interesting moments in a film that never can decide if it wants us to equate police and criminals as one in the same or simply be an off-kilter love story. This is one the few Pialat films that left me cold.
