- General info
The iconic Gerard Depardieu plays Mangin, a cop whose brutal method of investigation finds its obsessive outlet in an attempt to crack a Tunisian narcotics ring. It is when Mangin enters into close acquaintance with the defiant Noria (expertly played by Sophie Marceau in one of her first screen roles) that the film proceeds to chart an unexpected, emotionally ambiguous course.

- Police review by JD
This 27 year old film is not well filmed. The direction and photography are pretty standard for a television '80's series. The plot is not convincing. A detective who has just spent considerable time interviewing and unsuccessfully investigating a heroin dealer then takes her out dancing before making a clumsy advance which she turns down. He had just made a similar clumsy advance to his rather feeble superintendent. This may be reality for some but it did not make believable viewing in this disappointing DVD which included some very talented actors.
