, among other movies), depicts a day and a night in the life of cops on the beat in Toulouse and its suburbs. We follow the every step of these women and men, aged between 20 and 60 years old, and are not spared a single one of their thoughts or actions.

under its belt), Selon la police has been pre-purchased by Canal+ and Ciné+, and can boast support from the Occitanie and Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur regions, where the shoot will take place from 9 December until early February 2020. The French distribution and international sales will be handled by Pyramide.

Another of the CNC’s advance on receipts went to Connemera by Isild Le Besco, which (with a screenplay written by the director and Steven Mitz, together with Raphaëlle Desplechin) will tell the story of a mother’s reunion with her children in Ireland. This will be the fifth feature by the helmer, following Half-Price (2004), Charly [+leggi anche:
