36 Quai des Orfevres

Two of France's most charismatic and enduring actors, Gerard Depardieu and Daniel Auteuil face off as cops competing for the same promotion, using all methods at their disposal to track down a gang of armoured car robbers. Directed and co-written by ex-cop, Olivier Marchal, this slickly clever and darkly realistic thriller/drama is based on a true story of French police corruption in the 1980s and was nominated for 8 Cesar awards, France's equivalent to the Oscar.
