Synopsis: This gritty police drama shows us the underbelly of the Parisian drug trade. Lulu is a tough streetwise narcotics cop who, like a Frank Serpico or a Dirty Harry Callahan, doesn't play by the rules or kowtow to his weak and/or corrupt superiors. Lulu thrives in this violent world, where sheer guts can overcome his squad's deficiencies of money and equipment. Despite the ruthless environment that he lives and works in every day, he still manages somehow to maintain his humanity.
Genre: Crime, Drama, Thriller

To Nils...

If l ever catch one!

Skip it, it's not the first time.

Maybe, but the steam's bad enough.

Sure, we need a defroster.

But the garage won't listen.

They'll listen, once l'm retired.

The guy who made these trailers

never did a stakeout.

Hey, the 3 Graces! Coo-coo!

Say, Rambo...

the Paki's a bit overdue.

He's taking his time.

We've been here only 90 minutes.

We're good till midnight.


Time for a few more winks.

There he is.

The "cousin" is leaving his pad.

Heading forRue des Vignoles.

I'm off.

Fucking door codes!


He shows in an hour.

The Paki's not big on punctuality.

Changed his mind?

He's still cool

to front me the 50 g.

but if you pay in four days.

What d'you owe him?

$3000 maybe.

That makes... $60 a gram.



Listen, bud,

if we lose the tail,

you'll have to cough up.

Don't pull that shit on me!

I tell you you'll grab

at least 600 g on him!

Of which you get 50 g gratis.

Relax. It's as good as done.

Stay here. I'll go out first.

Hey, Lulu.

Got a few bucks for a beer?

So that's your new come-on.

What balls!

50 g free and you hit me for more.

Keep the change.

What a prick!

We're on.

It's cool.

The Paki shows in an hour.

Tulip 4's been paging eou

over Communications.

Did you acknowledge?

No, l plaeed dead.

Shit! Can't he count pencils

instead of bugging us?

Tulip 4 to Tulip 55l

Smashed again!

He started early today.

Can eou still shoot with eourpistil?

Watereour tulip

with Pastis?

Tulip 4. Come in.

Have eou got the trailer?

Yes. We're on a stakeout.

Pack up and report back to HQ.

I said we're on a stakeout.

It can wait. Pack it inl


The guy's a flake!

Tulip 55, read me?

Out! Out!

Here, for the bother!

We look like jerks with you howling

over the radio!

You didn't answerl

We're planning a bust

within the hour.

F*ck it! l want the trailer

so l can go home.

Without it, we've got no cover!

Take the metro, use your pass!

Shut up! l can't hear!

That trailer is assigned

to this Brigade,

which is under my orders.

I don't ride the metro

for some two-bit dealer!

You call 500 g two-bit?

F*ck eoul Do it tomorrownightl

Sure thing.

I'll leave him a subpoena.

Still here?

We had the wog on all fours.

For 2 hours. In the raw.

Here's your trailer.

You can shove it down your throat!

Pick it up!

There! Now climb up and get it.

In your state, you may be a while

coming down.

See that?

There's no more discipline.

Not since we began hiring

high school grads.

I'm gonna fix his wagon!

Kiss the Squad goodbye.

Behind a desk!

That's where you're going!

Don't bother.

It's worse than the Post Office.

Social Security's the worst.

Then comes the Post Office.

I'll have a coffee. Join me?

I'll lose my place.

Wait your turn, on the bench.

Sorry to disturb

spring cleaning,

but l work here now.

I've been transferred here.

You're alone?

The Commissioner's in.

And staff's on coffee break.

So it is you!

I didn't believe it when l heard.

Say, you've grown again.

This is Lulu:
hard-ass, good dick.

We met in the 14th arrondissement...

15 years ago!

I taught him all he knows.

I was his "pointer,"

as we used to say.


My purse was stolen...

I know, the purse.

Mr Clean, see to the lady's purse.

Come meet the jailor.

How many today?


We'll finish by 2 p.m.

If the Rue Metra eviction goes well.

He threatened suicide.

Just talk.

- A problem?

- None, Chief.

This is investigator

Lucien Marguet. Just in from HQ.

Hi, Chief.

Ah yes, Marguet.

Sorry, fella, we're busy now.

Put him at the desk.
