This gritty police drama shows us the underbelly of the Parisian drug trade. Lulu is a tough, streetwise narcotics cop who, like a Frank Serpico or a Dirty Harry Callahan, doesn't play by the rules or kowtow to his weak and corrupt superiors. Lulu thrives in this violent world, where sheer guts can overcome his squad's deficiencies of money and equipment. Despite the ruthless environment in which he lives and works every day, Lulu still manages somehow to maintain his humanity. Director Bertrand Tavernier will introduce this screening.
