Directed by Bertrand Tavernier
The gritty world of Parisian drug culture is revealed
in Tavernier's cinema verite style film. L.627 is the name of the special
undercover drug squadron in Paris. But Tavernier is not interested in a
simple "take" on the hazardous life of a drug cop. He explores the rivalries
and loyalties, and the emotional deprivation that becomes a part of a
policeman's life as he struggles to balance truth, justice and love in an
alien urban world. French with English subtitles. 145 minutes.
