The film takes place in Paris, where two cops (Auteuil and Depardieu) are competing for the vacant seat of Chief of Police while involved in a search for a gang of violent thieves. The film is directed by Olivier Marchal, a former police officer who spent 12 years in the French police before creating this story, which in part is taken from real events which occurred during the 1980s in France (see the gang des postiches arrest).Too much melodramatic and improbable, this movie exagerates in the dose of action, with a so called touch of art.poor.

36 ways to enjoy a movie.

36 Quai des Orfevres is the address of the C.I.D headquarters in Paris as familiar to the French as Scotland Yard is to the English.
Although delivering an extremely entertaining film, the Director, Olivier Marchal (himself a Gendarme for 12 years) over indulges himself and the serpentine plot almost spirals out of control.Without a doubt, 36 is a flawed, cliche ridden production but it is also stylish and fast paced and the acting from two serious heavyweights, Daniel Auteuil and Gerard Depardieu is impeccable.
As a realistic portrayal of inner city French policing, 36 falls way short. The main protagonists are heavy drinking, unscrupulous and occasionally brutal guardians of the law.
There are a few too many killings which hinder the plot and I'm sure the Paris tourist board are not ...
