Release Date: May 18, 2012
Thoughts: While The Artist was winning a bunch of awards stateside, over in France two other movies gave it a serious run for its money. One is The Intouchables (read my review here) and the other was this hard-boiled police drama that made a big impression on the French people. Directed by and starring Maïwenn (who played the blue-skinned diva in The Fifth Element) this appears to be no vanity project – especially in a movie that deals with the abuse of children. That might be a hard sell to the popular American theater chains but I look forward to getting the opportunity to see this one at one of our local art-house spaces.
