Enigmatic Heist Mini-Series
5 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

Caught this on Acorn TV, who collect and present various European mini-series, particularly Brit mysteries. Hence, you don't expect formulaic plots or clear, happy endings.

That is certainly the case with Clean Break, a 4-parter set in a seaside Irish town with diminishing economic prospects. Enter Frank Mallon, who operates a small, 'classic' car dealership - not very successfully. He has a broken marriage and a 17-year old daughter with poor taste in boyfriends. Soon, Frank is being pressured by a sullen banker, Desi Rane, who seems to have built his personality on a merge of Darth Vader and Ebenezer Scrooge, although, on the surface, he has a nice home and family, plus the love and respect of his employees and community.

Frank panics and plans a heist, but things go awry, as they often do in the post-modern film-noir world of European media. (This ain't the post-1934 Code films made in the USA, wherein the bad guys, by convention, had to get caught and punished for their crimes). Gradually, the layers are peeled back and we see who really inspired this robbery, and who is left holding the bag. I guessed correctly part of it, but some details were obscure in the concluding episode.

If you are the kind who needs everything wrapped up cleanly or you go crazy, I would pass on this one. I have adapted to these semi cop-out type of conclusions - so, I will survive. It's not the way I would have ended it. The 'process' was compelling, however.
