Police Réalisé par Maurice Pialat
Pialat shifts tone on a dime here, and Depardieu is right there with him – the intimate moments when the besotted inspector seems to astonish himself by blurting out “I’ve never loved anyone” is the very quintessence of his tough-and-tender persona. The closing freeze frame homages The 400 Blows (1959)… But Pialat’s film really belongs to a pre-New Wave tradition of French cinema, where police work is exactly that: work.

Concerned with the relationships between cops and robbers, this is one of the few Pialat films that can be said to rest comfortably in a popular genre. (Incidentally, it was one of the director’s biggest commercial hits in France.) Yet it’s hardly a work-for-hire; the explosive, unpredictable interrogation sequences bear Pialat’s unmistakable stamp, as does the brutishness of the main characters.

It certainly helps that this is a rare Pialat film with a strong screenplay, but Depardieu’s juxtaposition of violent machismo and utter impotence is one that would come to characterize his career. One can be permitted to see in it an impertinent half-portrait by Depardieu of Pialat himself—one partly indulged by the director, so daunted was he by the actor’s talent.
