Nathalie Baye plays the veteran dry alcoholic cop in this gritty ensemble thriller about a bunch of Paris detective. The ‘young lieutenant’ is Jalil Laspert, who comes fresh from the provincial police academy and thinks it’s going to be like the movies. Has a very realistic feel to it; it doesn’t get much more unglamorous than running after Russian bums in the Metro. Some very surprising twists, and Baye is always great to watch. Opens soon. About.com review forthcoming any minute now.
