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

What a surprise hit. Don't gloss over it over the 8/10. It's really good.
23 February 2017 | by y-05469See all my reviews

My no review spoiler is to get you to watch this show. It's really, really good. I give it an 8, which is a high rating, since I rate Breaking Bad at a perfect 10. But don't let this 8 discourage you. This is a really well made show.

There are some flaws here and there, minor things. I wish there were more episodes, some things are a tiny bit contrived, it would've been nice to use a camera stabilizer at times, etc. but this does not detract from how fun this show is to watch.

It's really really entertaining. It's thrilling and mysterious, it's funny and sad, it makes you laugh and it makes you shed a tear, the whole roller-coaster and you know what? It does all this in 8 episodes.

It does more in 8 episodes than many shows can't do over years and seasons.

Don't think this is just regular 90's-style TV. This may not be Breaking Bad quality, but it's post-Golden Era TV, that is, this is not the product of rejects from cinema, but has some of the best acting and production I've seen from France in quite some time.

It's really that good.
