Storyline

Police commander Simon Weiss, head of the division that supervises Paris's demi-monde, starts out on his nightly tour of bars, discos and strip clubs, making sure once again that the owners don't bend the rules too far. Weiss knows he's between a rock and hard place: it's obvious that criminal gangs run rampant in his special domain, and even more obvious that they're protected by higher-ups in the department.

Trivia

The story of this film takes place in only one night, and as far as the first night of shooting was rainy and the others were not, the crew had to water streets and pavements to give the true illusion of the one night story. See more »

Interesting to experience another culture, a different police force and approach, another country and finally the night scene something we all know exists and remains way of life for the many. The underworld comes to mind. The world of shadows and not quite what you would see or support lets say during the day time but it exists none the less. I liked the fact of how respected out of fear the police are in this movie to the point that they don't need a gun to make themselves obeyed but can use a gun to make a point no problem when they have to. At some point, we are introduced to the power and corruption of the human nature that once it starts, not only can it not stop but it craves more and more. This be the case here. A good time well spent watching something different. Recommend finger foods and tasty drink. Enjoy
