“Director Maurice Pialat positioned himself as the mortal enemy of pretension, clearing away all polite literary fictions to spotlight the human tensions between his actors. Though he originated the genre project Police as his mainstream break through, [Pialat] determinedly pushes against the genre grain… In conscious opposition to the neon punk posturing of the then-fashionable “cinema du look,” Pialat stripped out any action heroics to focus instead on the loose ends that create a lived immediacy, aiming for the real-time tension of a documentary where film stars are lit like nobodies and put to work aside novices.”
Robert Keser, Senses of Cinema
