LE PASSAGER (2014 – )

le passager-3

Creator: Jean-Christophe Grangé 

Cast: Jean-Hugues Anglade, Raphaëlle Agogué, Michaël Cohen

Mathias Freire (Jean-Hugues Anglade), psychiatrist, and Anaïs Chatelet (Raphaëlle Agogué), captain at the Bordeaux police station, have to work together on a series murders inspired by Greek mythology crimes. Mathias takes care of a man found near a crime scene and has lost his memory overnight. Little by little he sees himself into his patient and begins to ask questions. Did he have the same memory loss that his patient. Did he has memory loss which he is having a hard time of getting back. Did he have memory loss, did he suffer of  a mental fugue? Suddenly he takes off to try to answer those question.

It is a well thought out series that at the end will leave it open to get an other season out of it but I do not think it is going to happen due to the rating but I do like this series anyway. Well acted by Jean-Hugues Anglade an actor who diversified himself even has done American films. He plays a psychiatrist who takes a patient who was wandering at the scene of the crime. This event opened up in his own memory a bunch of question which is attached with one secret after an other. It is a pursuit of his own identity and might what happened. Is there someone pulling the string here. There is two stories that will merge with each other. It is suspenseful  enough and will keep you wanting more. I hope this is an other season but unfortunately I doubt it. By the way this series is from Europacorp the production company of Luc Besson.

Cast : Jean-Hugues AngladeKarole RocherNicolas Duvauchelle

Four police officers of the SDPJ Hauts-de-Seine, Eddie Caplan, Walter Morlighem, Theo Wachevski and Roxane Delgado discover that a colleagues if theres committed suicide over a case he was unfairly blamed. At that time they will go above the law and cross the line in order to wash the honor of their friend.

Here is a series that is created by Olivier Marshal He is born in the same city I was born and country (France). He was a cop for quite sometimes before decided to be an actors he also is a great director, He writes Crime movie / Thriller Like 36th Precinct, Diamond 13, Les Lyonnais, MR 73, See those on my other website Diversfilms.wordpress.com  now he created this series. But the thing with french series is that we get a new season every 2 years. The 4 cops are embarking on an violent mission to clear his name. They are not going by the book and will get answers don’t matter what the method they have ti go trough.They go head to toe with the internal affair who has investigated their actions. It is similar to the series the Shield from the U.S. which I am going to talk about later. This is a kick ass series a la french style. i think you should find it on Netflix.
