With a script written co-written by Maïwenn and Emmanuelle Bercot (who also co-stars), the plot centres on how Fred, a rebel at the juvenile division in Paris, falls for Mélissa, a photographer appointed by the Ministry for the Interior to do a documentary on him. Torn between Fred and the world that is open to him, and her fickle and rich conductor husband, François, how will Mélissa, from her very bourgeois 16th arrondissement of Paris cope with understanding the violent reality of Fred’s life?

Produced by Alain Attal for Les Films du Trésor, Polisse is co-produced by Arte France Cinéma and Mars Films (who is handling the titles’s French distribution) and was bought by Canal + and Ciné Cinéma. The nine-week shoot will take place in the Paris region until October 29. The score will be composed by Gabriel Yared, while international sales are being handled by Wild Bunch.
