The Break

(Belgium, 2017)

Lately we have been enjoying European TV series like this one more than most American shows. I’m not sure why this is. It’s certainly not because nothing good is being made in the USA. But there is a certain sensibility that just seems to speak to us. This is a good one, a complex story full of twists and turns as a disgraced policeman with amnesia tries to remember his actions in investigating the murder of a young African football player. As in most shows like this, the story is improbable, but just barely this side of believable.
