    Cannes Review: Over The Top 'Broken' Starring Tim Roth & Cillian Murphy Can't Get It Together

    There is a difference between a kitchen sink drama and a drama that includes everything but the kitchen sink, and unfortunately for "Broken," it's more of the latter than the former.

    'Polisse' is a sprawling but vivid portrait of the Paris police department’s Child Protection Unit, a tight-knit group of colleagues whose emotionally draining work (like protecting children from sexual predators within their own family) affects their private lives as well as their relationships on the job.
