Box Set Comprises:

Braquo: Season 1: A dark realistic cop series from world-famous filmmaker and former police office Olivier Marchal. Braquo (slang for Heist) follows a squad of Paris cops who exist in the blurred boundaries at the very edge of the law, often using violence and intimidation to get the job done. The lives of these officers change radically when their squad leader, falsely accused of corruption, commits suicide.

Determined to clear his name they start an investigation of their own, only to find that the police department itself stands in their way.

Driven by adrenaline and a thirst for justice, they must turn their backs on the laws they're sworn to enforce if they are to uncover the truth. Facing constant danger from all sides - and with the two most likely outcomes being imprisonment or death - the stakes couldn't be higher, but that merely serves to crank up the tension in this acclaimed series.

Braquo: Season 2: The incendiary series 2 of Braquo. Rejected by their peers and superiors alike, Eddy and his renegade team suffer the shame and disgrace of going from hunters to the hunted. Caught in the crossfire of a gang war, the road to redemption will be long and difficult, and they can no longer rely on themselves alone to avoid a total fall from grace.

After the big names, and all the interest in foreign language cop series, especially Nordic Noir, this comes along with very little fanfare.
Series like The Killing and Spiral and The Bridge all had a heavy political presence, which is fine and dandy. Unless you want something that kicks like a mule, but minus the cheese factor. So The (original) Sweeney, The Professionals, with no tongue in cheek. Then amp it up one hundred fold, strip out any waffle or side stories, and lingering arty camera shots, and you start to get to Braquo.
A series of french special branch types, all with issues - raging drug habits, cheap shags, gambling problems, who hover several miles outside of legal.
Really really stylish, the whole team look shattered most of the time, women are skinny and all look alike- in need of a kip and a good meal. And the blokes seem to live on whisky, fags and the occasional toe to toe tear up. 10% Spiral, 90% all their own, I loved this, and it is rare that something stands out above the rest. You reach a real high (or low) point and just as the punchline or money shot is delivered............ the episode ends and you wind up jumping straight to the next one, it's a liberty at times to see credits between them.
Fast paced, character driven, Backstreet France filmed in washed out colour, with a great cast of characters, this feels more like film quality, and paced like Point Blank and Tell No One or the Russian Pusher trilogy.
ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT, YOU WON'T WANT TO TURN IT OFF. Very gritty very cool and very different to just about anything else.
