Philippe Noiret, Thierry Lhermitte, Grace de Capitani, Julien Guiomar, Régine, Claude Brosset, Albert Simono.

To his chagrin he is assigned an idealistic new partner fresh from police training college. His efforts to enmesh his new colleague in the prevailing corruption succeed spectacularly. The original French title is Les Ripoux, backslang for les pourris meaning the rotten ones. It won the César Award for Best Film in 1985
