Storyline

It all starts in 2010, when ring leader Tony Roucas, a.k.a. Mad Tony, who is serving a long-term prison sentence, and Kenz a young North African delinquent from an estate, escape from prison. In this 21st century overcrowded prison, they share the same tiny cell. They have absolutely nothing in common and have nothing to say to each other. Their escape reveals their differences even more, where the old methods of organized crime (with carefully planned missions, codes and complex networks) conflict with the new ones (fast, immediate, less prepared). Tony faces his past and exposes the cops and crooks who sent him to jail. Several flashbacks take us back to his hectic past, from the 50s up to the 80s including the events of 1968 and paint a vivid picture of the history of organized crime. Written by Happy_Evil_Dude

Witty and contrast-based story of thugs of different ages and apprehensions
5 February 2018 | by BeneCumbSee all my reviews

Abortive heist, long-term imprisonment, successful escape, consequetive revenge crusade - topics used in several films and series. So, for the sake of novelty and attraction, one should introduce a different angle or approach; it is to my liking that this series (with UK title Tony´s Revenge - not too felicitous) has them. Although the course of events is not always smooth, the most interesting is the depiction of inter-generational differences, how the people in their 20ies and 50ies think and operate, even within crime, and how it is often difficult to arrange things and make plans. So the series has several black humour moments, even under serious and tragic events. Also, the inclusion of flashbacks is well arranged and reasoned, providing different undertones and nuances, creating variable moods and era-specific wholeness. As to the cast, I liked most of performers (although unknown to me), but it made me wonder why some characters had different actors depicting them in different ages, but others not, creating more confusion and reducing plausibilty (e.g. Claire, Janvier), as people´s looks tend to change more within 30 years. Anyhow, a good series to be followed, in line with Braquo or Engrenages, for example.
