Engrenages/Spiral & Other French/European Films On DVD
Anyone else hooked on the French TV Series "Engrenages" (UK title is "Spiral"). I've been a fan of this French detective series for a couple of years now and just watched the final episodes of Season 4. Being a lover of French TV/film drama and comedy, I can honestly say I've enjoyed this intensely. Just found out that Season 5 is due out and that they may also be making another couple of Seasons to follow.
Which, if any French or European, TV/films have you enjoyed ? the Danish "Borgen" is one I couldn't resist and may also be back on. The Swedish "Wallander" dramas are usually quite gripping, although the Kenneth Branagh episodes are not as good as the originals.
Caught part of a weird French comedy the other night on Channel 4 "Micmacs" and got well into it, so much that I've ordered the DVD so I can catch up on the first half that I missed.
I find continental films generally far superior to the usual American "pap" we are all subjected to, and admire countries that support their own film industries.
