Ambitious, academically gifted Lyes Beloumi is of Maghrebinian origin. Shy Nadia Poulain is a young mother in a shaky marriage.

Realistic, funny and "film noir" : good french TV show
I am living in France and we import a lot of American TV shows. American TV Shows are broadcasted till morning to night on major networks. CSI, X-File, Law and Order, Veronica Mars, sitcoms etc ... and all of these are rocking the TV audience here. We love the better and the worst when it is made in America. So, our TV fiction productions poor and most of the time low budgeted, consensual and often ridiculous. Why wasting money to create quality serials when American directors are working (good) instead us.
With "Les Bleus ..." (slang expression for "trainee policemens") we follow young policemen in Paris. The cast is good, the stories are rate and complex, the dialogs are funny and clever and the film direction is superb.
I do not know if foreign people will understand all of the trick words and the jokes but I hope people in France had fun with this.
