Very good French TV series
11 June 2019 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

This is a social crime story taking place in the east of France, les Vosges. A tale of social distress and despair for some people trying to make it. Two men, petty blue collar workers and also bouncers in a night club decide to get some cash, emergency cash, by kidnapping prostitutes from a pimp ring, and also for the benefit of another pimp net. Roschdy Zem brings here an astounding performance, as a lost man in struggle with something far stronger than him. His sidekick in the film is a bodybuilder, a non professional actor whom, if Roschdy Zem had known him five years ago, had hired him for his movie as a director called BODYBUILDER. The bodybuilder character is pretty well acted for a non pro actor. Especially if you watch this dude talking in real life; all the contrary of the character he plays in this amazing TV show. For me, that's precisely the mark of a skilled man for acting. Playing something the total opposite of your natural character.
