The Film: A hard-hitting look at the cases and officers in a French police Child Protection Unit.
Why It Should Win: A brave yet measured film, based on real cases of child abuse from French police files.
The film not only has an outstanding ensemble cast - any of whom could easily be among best actor nominees - but also a maverick director in the form of Maïwenn (pictured - she also plays photographer Melissa).
Standout Scene: The heart-wrenching moment when a young boy is separated from his mother, who abandons him to the care of the Child Protection Unit.
His screams resonate right through you - his pain is so real you wonder what the director said to him to spark such a performance.
