Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 09/20/1986
"...The more of this director's work one sees, the more one appreciates....Depardieu, yet again, combines bruitshness, intelligence and profound emotion with a subtlety that has no equal."
Variety - 09/04/1985
"...A personal film that deliberately works against conventional expectations....POLICE is one of Pialat's most assured and polished performances..."
Los Angeles Times - 11/06/1986
"...Mesmerizing....Pialat builds slowly, through an accumulation of detail and atmosphere....His finely crafted, singular films catch you unawares, wind you tighter and tighter as you see them, and linger for months, even years after..."
Sight and Sound - 11/01/2008
"[S]howcasing one of Gerard Depardieu's strongest performances..."
