Gripping!

9/10
Author: patemdens from United Kingdom

Frenchman Thomas(Jalil Lespert) based in London comes to Paris to secure a deal for his company. In the Nightclub, "Folies Pigalle", on stage he recognises his sister, as he tries to speak to her, she goes missing. Here is the simple start of this excellent captivating french series. I simply didn't think it could be this good. The story makes perfect use of Pigalle, the Parisien "hot quarter". The story quickly becomes about revenge, territory, redemption. This really is edge of your seat drama. The characters evolve, grow, speak dialogues that ring true. Most camera shots are hand-held, giving a surveillance feel, the photography is bleak, sometimes out of focus. The nightclub scenes are convincing. The story has hints of "La Balance", "sex Lies and Videotapes", "Peeping Tom" and "The Godfather". The musical score is bewitching. The acting is excellent. Twists are a plenty. I loved it. A second series is planned, I cannot wait.
