SPIRAL  In French with English Subtitles, released in France as Engrenages, the hard hitting Parisian cop thriller. Intentionally monochromatic photography, starkly filmed decomposing corpses, autopsies and intense interrogations set the tone. It's a police thriller that reveals society's ever-changing codes of law: a dark series with constant and increasing tension. Pierre Clement, young recently-named public prosecutor, teams up with Police Captain Laure Berthaud and examining magistrate Judge Roban working together to see justice done, each with his own methods and beliefs, each dealing with his own personal demons. Their relationships are complicated, as only the closest of friends and enemies can be. Three equally important lead characters, three different lives, three visions of justice.
