Slow, but awesome build-up. Hard to follow while trying to keep up with the French subtitles, but worth the extra effort! This young French director is incredible.

A lot like a too long episode of "Law and Order: SVU." Not extremely entertaining, but the characters are strong and worth watching.

Amazing...But feels like there s a lot covered for a 2h movie? politics, many private issues of the police staff, many child abuse cases. And where are the pictures from the photographer? I think she was pretty useless then

Great Movie dealing with a Difficult/Taboo theme. The director is able to deliver with the intense story . It shows the police unit in its raw form...with there vices and virtues....shows them as normal human having there own sets of problem. Performance by the cast were powerful, be it the kids or the adults.

I don't often watch crime dramas, but this was an exception. It was kind of all-over-the-place, but perhaps that reflects the nature of the CPU's job. Tough to watch at times, but it really makes you respect the people who work hard to protect children from harm.

Incredibly honest! This was a cop film that didn't exploit the heroic deeds of a police force but rather characterized the bonds that formed from within the police station in an effort to catch criminals who have hurt children.

A film that doesn't hold much back. A bit boring in some parts. Makes you appreciate the work that CPU does. The main thing that draws you into this film is the characters and their stories in and out of their work. To begin with the arguments are funny and amusing but by the end of the film it gets old.

Excellent! One of the best movies I've seen this year!

Sat through the whole two hours. The worst part wasn't the film not living up to the trailer, but having to endure commentary from those that I was watching the film with. Yeah, it's not that great. It's also not totally terrible. Ultimately, it's not worth your viewing.

It's disjointed but with moments of real intensity.

I could've done without the slow-mo ending.

Polisse is a movie which depicts perhaps the ugliest side of humanity. It is among the most powerful movies I have come across as it uses a documentary approach to bring a harrowing collection of stories to the fore. And it is due to the style and phenomenal cast that you have to question whether there is really any acting taking place here. From the adults to the kids, itâ(TM)s simply off the charts!

The movie explores the Parisian Child Protection Unitâ(TM)s personal challenges, departmental confrontations, and a multitude of disturbing cases. In fact, with all the shock value involving kids in the movie, you can be forgiven for losing track of whatâ(TM)s going on in the lives of the actual Protection Unit (probably warranting multiple viewings for those brave enough).

There is some truly gut-wrenching stuff on display here, definitely not for the faint of heart. The ending, dramatic as it may be, leaves a moving metaphor and closes the movie on a great emotional high.

Overall, Polisse is an incredible movie for how well it puts together a truly shocking subject. Itâ(TM)s one I probably donâ(TM)t have the strength to endure again however.

Just watched it, excellent acting, very heavy so not a date movie.

Very realistic I thought. Interesting. However too many plots and subplots going on and would have benefited from focusing on one or two stories rather than lots.

Uneven, wild, flawed but gripping

Real. Horribly real.

The French version of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and it's as entertaining as he TV series. It's like the whole 2 seasons packed in one European movie. It's too fast for me many things are happening at once. when there is a touching scene it doesn't stay there moves on the other story, that's why It's messy. Acting is good.

Como detienes una marea con las manos? La ganadora del Premio del Jurado en el FI de Cine de Cannes,... Polisse es fantastica.

Pas inintéressant, mais beaucoup, beaucoup trop long. Ça gâche le film
