Decades after a 1983 terrorist attack, a law student and a cop uncover a conspiracy.
In 1983 Warsaw, a man is beating another man who is in the Solidarity resistance movement in Poland. He goes outside after leaving the man halfway dead. He sees a medical transport van, notices the dripping paint on it, then is killed in a massive explosion. And here is are opening shot on this perfectly writing Polish series, in a Neo-Noir fashion. Then it is 2003 on our next shot the movement was derailed by these terrorist attacks and now Poland is under a Soviet-backed regime, where protest is punished severely.
Anatol Janow (Robert Więckiewicz) is a police detective who used to work on high-profile cases, but has been demoted to this division that he is in. He’s called to the apartment of a known resistance operative, who looks like he killed himself his partners called it a suicide but Janow know better than that someone has killed this man to look like a suicide. The second part of the story is this law student Kajetan Skowron (Maciej Musiał), whose parents died in the 1983 attacks, is given a case file by a judge, the murder of someone the judge knew before the attacks. Somehow Skowron meets Janow who looks into the dossier and uncovers a conspiracy that the government wants to shut down.
This well writing series feels like an espionage as we meet the some of the people of the resistance. The set design is feels like a Neo-noir film , reflecting the idea of an Eastern European dictatorship. It is an unexpected jewel from Netflix with complex characters and the story is intelligently told but I think that most people will overlook this one my advice do not miss it.
Cast: Manav Kaul, Radhika Apte, Rohit Pathak
In a near-future India, a mysterious prisoner is sent to a remote military interrogation center where he turns the tables on his captors by exposing horrible secrets and unleashing something out of this world.
Here is a terrific series from India 3 episodes only from Netflix. It is set in the near future where fascism is very present and where the military rule the country. Anyone who is against the states is being put to jail by the military interrogated and tortured to death. Nida Rahim (Radhike Apte) a new recruit, is accepted to work in the prison to interrogate the prisoners. Ali Saeed a dangerous terrorist is incarcerated in the prison where she is now works and must crack him to talk. Will she succeed?
Nice little series here that is not too predictable and has a some surprises and secrets that will surface. Nida here has a secret of her own and will be the one that we will follow most of the time. She does not question the prisoner too much but she is going to figure out what is going on. The series is written by Patrick Graham who had a dream and so he started to write the series. Netflix picked it up and voila. You will not be disappointed. It is like the thing but in a prison with supernatural element. It is like a rewrite of the thing all that because Graham had this dream how weird is that.
