Gerard Depardieu (1900) is cast as a tough French detective in Maurice Pialat’s romantic drama Police. Depardieu, praised by Sight and Sound in what they called “one of his strongest performances,” portrays Louis Mangin, a policier known for his hard-nosed interrogation tactics. His code of honor will be tested when he finds himself attracted to a drug dealer’s girlfriend (Sophie Marceau, Beyond the Clouds) who is also a suspect in a drug smuggling syndicate.
Police, directed by Maurice Pialat (À nos amours) from a screenplay by Pialat, Catherine Breillat, Sylvie Danton and Jacques Fieschi, features supporting performances by Sandrine Bonnaire (À nos Amours), Richard Anconina (A Stone in the Mouth) and Pascale Rocard (Rabbit Fever).
