I didn’t know much about the film before going in to the cinema. Around half an hour in I thought it was shaping up to be a pretty standard police procedural.

Pierre Michel has an addictive personality. He’s beaten gambling, now he’s stuck on putting Gaëtan Zampa behind bars. But at what cost?
If you view this simply as a crime drama you’re going to be disappointed. Instead look at it as a character study, focusing on one man’s battle with himself. With a healthy dose of corruption and justice thrown in for good measure.
