Product Description

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.

Why is this not on DVD in the UK yet?!?!? This has got to be one of the best programs on TV at the moment. I am currently watching it on FX HD, a channel on Sky HD and it is fantastic. From the first episode it grips like a vice and doesn't let go. It concerns a group of police officers in Paris that work for a special task force. When one of their team commits suicide after being investigated, they spring to work to clear his name and stop internal affairs from bringing them all down. This is a team who don't so much bend the rules, as break them, and set fire to them and dance on the ashes...but all for a good reason.

The team is headed up by Caplan (Jean Hugues Anglade from Killing Zoe & Betty Blue), a phenomenal actor who you can't help but root for no matter how flawed he is. A brilliant program which can't come to English DVD soon enough.

Highly recommended!

Won't go into the plot as the blurb sums up the story nicely. Watching this on FX at the moment. Hyper violent, dark but hugely thrilling, If you are a fan of euro crime, you will love this, but be warned it makes The Killing look like Cbeebies does Murder She Wrote.

I am a big fan of Marchal's feature films, so dark and so good at portraying Paris's dirty cops routine. This series was no exception.
The acting is first class, the plot is gripping, very violent yet their friendship and loyalty will make you forgive their every mistake.
And nice to see Anglade act again since I saw him in Betty Blue or Nikita. ANGLADE has the charisma to carry off his role as the leader of the pack.

I recently watched the whole series on FX and was hooked, I cannot wait for series 2 to start playing here in Uk.

I am French, I love the fact that my country has produced something of such quality and originality. The French are getting better at making exciting crime and cop thrillers films, watch out for the latest MARCHAL movie set in my hometown Lyon: "LES LYONNAIS". It should come out soon here in Uk. I hope it is just as good as his latest ones.

Also, I have been recommended the series "SPIRALS" (1,2&3) also available on amazon, so will defo get that sometime soon.

This series is excellent, the story compelling and I was hooked from start to finish. The plot was complex and involving and the action fast-paced. OK there were a couple of quibbles - the way the main players recovered from injury was cartoonish, the troubles piled up slightly too high to be possible - but that doesn't distract from the high octane style and story telling. Highly recommended.

I see there is series 2 out now - I can't wait to see it.

The French make excellent crime dramas and this is a prime example of the genre. No need to repeat the synopsis just suffice to say it's about a rogue police unit who's tendency to cross the line in order to apprehend the criminals causes them to lose sight of their own moral compass. If you liked the US series "The Shield" and can cope with subtitles then you'll like this. In fact there are striking similarities to the storylines in both series.

This is really plumbing the depths of fictional corrupt French police officers! Not for those without a strong stomach, I would say. If you love Spiral, and want to see what would happen if a Gilou sort of character allowed his temptations to get the better of him, start watching Braquo. It's brutal, grimy, violent, disturbing, fairly shocking. I'm really enjoying it, but this isn't the sort of series where you get some relief from the police brutality by following a side story about lawyers or victims etc.

... are in American. Why? Pretty much all other euro imports (Spiral/Killing/Wallander/Borgen) are in UK English. Projects and 'burbs and lots of 'wanna's just grates on an otherwise excellent box set.

I bought the DVD as it was recommended by Amazon. I was not disappointed! The casting of the characters was spot on. So believable if emotionally and mentally flawed. Never come across the lead actor Jean-Hugues Anglade before. He was brilliant as the main man but the others in the team were equally outstanding. Even the fay guy in the Crime Dept was good, as were the two Internal Affairs cops.
Not for the fainthearted this film as it is at times very, very violent and it is shown in graphic detail.

If you like french cop films this is for you. Bit darker than the French Spiral series currently on BBC4 Saturday evenings but worth buying DVD when Spiral Series 5 ends soon. I would not expect this to be shown on British TV as I think the violence is too much for commissioning directors.
