Braquo : Season Two
Saturday 12th May 2012
Following the success of the recently released Season 1 box set and a triumphant television debut on the FX channel, Arrow Films is pleased to confirm the highly acclaimed French cop-thriller Braquo's second series will be released as a 2-disc DVD & Blu-ray Box Set on 11th June 2012.
For this highly anticipated second series, the creators of the original Braquo joined forces with Abdel Raouf Dafri, the French writer behind A Prophet and Mesrine, with the results promising to be darker, grittier... and a lot more violent.
Having been demoted, reassigned and even fired from the force, thanks to their escapades in the debut series, is the game up for hard-hitting cops Caplan, Morlighem, Roxanne and Vachewski? Jean-Hugues Anglade (Nikita, Betty Blue) returns as the enigmatic Eddy Caplan to lead his renegade squad of Parisian detectives as they fall yet further in the eyes of the law.
Rejected by their peers and superiors alike, our heroes suffer the shame and disgrace of going from hunters to the hunted. Caught in the crossfire of a gang war, the road to redemption will be long and hard and they can no longer rely on themselves alone to avoid a total fall from grace.
Hailed as France's answer to The Wire, Braquo has mesmerised UK viewers with its violent and realistic story-lines. Hailed as one of the most gripping and brutal police series of the last decade, fans of The Killing, The Wire and The Shield will love Braquo.
To coincide with the release of the Braquo Season 2 Blu-ray and DVD box set on June 11th, Arrow films will also release a specially packaged box set containing both series to date.
