The subject matter is well trod, but Poromboiu manages to meditate cleverly on it. Is it really worth it to spend all this time and resources on busting some child who's experimenting with drugs. Cristi has to jump through hoops to try to prevent the bust from going down -- begging coworkers to rush research and evidence processing just to stop a young boy from getting arrested. The counselors and commanding officers are all committed to closing the case, using the logic that that boy would deal to two other friends, who would then deal to two other friends. It's the kind of puritanical mentality that prevents the legalization of otherwise harmless narcotics. Even more intriguing is the semantical acrobatics, particularly since I didn't think this would be as effective in a foreign film. Shows what I know.

Police, Adjective seemed like a deft stage play overstuffed with monotonous filler. It was decent, if too meandering. It was pleasant enough, with occasional thoughtful portions, but otherwise it was an unremarkable film. Like writing this review, there wasn't much else to say.
