Police Station - Commissariato
Directed by Ilan Klipper, Virgil VernierItalian title: Police Station - Commissariato
France / 2008 / 85'

Siamo in una stazione di polizia, nella tranquilla periferia di Rouen, in Normandia. Non c’è pathos, nessuna inquadratura spettacolare, la camera va al di là dell’aspetto pittoresco o eroico degli eventi, ma senza nasconderne il lato umoristico. Le strategie della confessione, la seduzione, il rammarico e l’autorità sono visualizzati senza alcun tentativo di razionalizzazione. Ciò che emerge è il ritratto di un mondo in cui le parole vengono travisate e distorte formando un quadro allucinante di ordinaria follia. The film is shot in some ordinary police station, in the quiet suburbs of Rouen, Normandy. There is no pathos, no spectacular angle: the camera goes beyond the picturesque or heroic quality of things, without neglecting humour. The multiple games of confession, seduction, regret and authority are displayed, without any attempt at rationalization. What emerges is the portrait of a society in which speech twists and distorts in a hallucinating picture of ordinary madness.
