Storyline

It all starts in 2010, when ring leader Tony Roucas, a.k.a. Mad Tony, who is serving a long-term prison sentence, and Kenz a young North African delinquent from an estate, escape from prison. In this 21st century overcrowded prison, they share the same tiny cell. They have absolutely nothing in common and have nothing to say to each other. Their escape reveals their differences even more, where the old methods of organized crime (with carefully planned missions, codes and complex networks) conflict with the new ones (fast, immediate, less prepared). Tony faces his past and exposes the cops and crooks who sent him to jail. Several flashbacks take us back to his hectic past, from the 50s up to the 80s including the events of 1968 and paint a vivid picture of the history of organized crime. Written by Happy_Evil_Dude

Top-rate crime drama - ce beaux
30 October 2013 | by See all my reviews

While European viewers may be used to this type and style of TV crime drama, there's nothing like it in the US (let's now hope that a US network doesn't decide to re-make it - they will surely fail, as they so often do). French TV has a knack of producing some superior procedurals and crime dramas and this is one of the best, fully deserving of a wider viewing audience. These eight episodes were engaging from the get-go and didn't let up from beginning to end. Gritty, with twists and turns and riveting throughout, helped by some great performances all round. The earlier reviewer outlined the story, suffice to say this could have been a run-of-the-mill escaped prisoners tale but the writing, performances and direction elevates it well above that. It's available with English sub-titles and don't be put off by them either.
