programme_36-quai-des-orfevres_826_489.j

36 Quai Des Orfevres or 36th Precinct (2004) Olivier Marchal, France.  Two cops vie to become the next chief of police by cracking a big case.  The competition begins to spin out of control.  It is by no means a great film and at times seems a bit incredible but it does feature two great actors: Gerard Depardieu and Daniel Auteuil.

I had forgotten that originally this is really a foreign language film though the version that is available to most of us and the one that I saw was narrated by Morgan Freeman.

I will always remember one particular thing about seeing this film.  I had taken my young grandson to see it and as the film began and we hit about the fourth production company credit he declared "I'm bored."
