Virginie, Erik and Aristide are police officers. All three try to keep their personal and emotional lives together while dealing with daily incidents of violence in homes and on the streets. One night, they are assigned an unusual mission: to drive a migrant to the airport for unspecified reasons. On the way there, Virginie discovers that the man will be sentenced to death if he goes back to his country. Faced with an unbearable dilemma, she starts to question their mission. The trio has one night to decide a man’s fate.
Anne Fontaine, the director of THE GIRL FROM MONACO, COCO BEFORE CHANEL, PERFECT MOTHERS, GEMMA BOVARY, once again shows eclecticism. POLICE, a social drama, sets out to draw an accurate picture of police work in its most humane dimension. The acting trio composed of Virginie Efira, Omar Sy and Grégory Gadebois is impeccable. According to Télérama: “a major film, frank and tender, that offers an understanding hand to those in difficult lives.”
