Roubaix, une Lumière
A terrific fictionalised adaptation of the 2008 French TV documentary ‘Roubaix, Commissariat Central’, which followed a determined police officer ‘ in the economically depressed town of Roubaix.
Following a crime, we are plunged into the lives of the marginalised - they are the ones that come into contact most often with the police, led in Roubaix by the experienced and quiet but firm Captain Daoud (Roschdy Zem). Among the potential suspects are the neighbours Claude and Marie (Léa Seydoux and Sara Forestier). “An affectionate homage to crime cinema …” - Playlist. (Subtitles)
