When I was in Paris in October you could not escape the posters for Maiwenn's Polisse
which premiered at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival. The film was made for about $7 million and it has already grossed almost $20 million in France where it actually beat The Adventures of Tin Tin
for two weeks. It is now rolling out through other territories and will be released in the US by Sundance Selects.
Maiwenn is included in the five directors vying for France Lumiere Award. The film is also up for best screenplay (but not best picture.)
