Director, Olivier Marchal is a former Parisian policeman, and the story of 36 Quai des Orfevres draws on his own experiences of the police force, as well as those of Dominique Loiseau, who was a senior member of the BRI (Search and action Squad) in the mid-eighties and worked as a consultant on the film.

Leo Vrinks (Auteuil) and Denis Klein (Depardieu) are at the head of two different departments of the Paris police force, located at Quai des Orfevres. Once close, they are no longer friends, mainly due to their differing work methods and Vrinks' wife, Camille.

An audacious gang of robbers stage seven armed robberies throughout Paris leaving a bloody trail in their wake. After a year of terror, the Chief of Police orders that Vrinks and Klein bring the criminals to justice with a substantial boon to the man who brings them in... His job. As the competition between the two men hots up, the lines between right and wrong become blurred. Both men find themselves sinking into a hellish place not far removed from that of the criminals...

 Great cop thriller.

| | See all Shinder's reviews (3)

Parisian police chase a gang of unrelenting armed robbers in this slick French thriller. Not the Film Noir its title may suggest, 36 Quay Des Orfevres plays homage to the great detective movies of the 70's. With Popeye Doyle grit and Alain Delon charm, 36 delivers a raw and hard hitting blow.

 classy and stylish cops and robbers movie.

I think i would have to agree with reesyboy. This film is definitely the thinking man's crime thriller. The plot follows two detectives as they compete for promotion, which will be given to the man who brings a particularly violent and efficient gang of armed-robbers to justice. As the situation goes awry, a complex plot of betrayal, deception and revenge begins, as the two leads battle it out for keeps.
The two leading men are the Pacino and DeNiro of French cinema, and watching them together (they were together in Jean De Florette) is a cinematic pleasure. Definitely worth buying if you enjoy (less mainstream) crime thriller.

Serious cop drama for the discerning viewer. Dispenses with over the top thrills and offers gritty realism and believable events wich will keep you watching until the very end. Very satisfying.

Had high hopes before watching this as I usually like gritty thrillers but this was one of the most unpleasant films I've ever seen. No redeeming characteristics in any of the main characters, just lots of shooty bangs. Avoid
