“SK1 is French police jargon for “Serial Killer 1,” the codename given in the 1990s to a rapist and murderer who preyed on young women in eastern Paris. Nicknamed “The Beast of Bastille,” the culprit, later identified as Guy Georges, was not the country’s first serial killer, though he was the first to be caught via DNA analysis — even if cops had to overcome years of bureaucratic bungling and bad luck to finally get to him.
The procedural side of the decadelong manhunt takes a front seat to everything else in writer-director Frederic Tellier’s gripping period thriller, which stars the debonair Raphael Personnaz(The French Minister) as an obsessive detective who finds his personal and professional lives upended by the case. Best when it reveals the painstaking details of investigative work, worst when it plunges into improbable emotional depths, SK1 is an above-average policier that should score solid returns at home while piquing the interest of genre distributors abroad.”- The Hollywood Reporter
