Alain Corneau directed this French drama about detectives and informants. After a cop's suicide, detective Gerard (comedian Alain Chabat) acquires his late partner's informant (i.e. "cousin"), Nounours (comedian Patrick Timset), a drug-dealing family man. Ironically, Nounours has a happy family life, while Gerard's is in disarray. Set in Paris and Parisian suburbs, the film explores the world of snitches, sources, tips, kickbacks, and stakeouts.
