”The fourth era of the industrial revolution requires a fourth generation of espionage: by merging our traditional human abilities with the galloping innovations, new partnerships, and an attitude that mobilizes diversity and paving the way for the young”.
So said the british MI5 chief Andrew Parker recently in an extremely rare interview where he also support Russia's cyber war as one of the most threatening clouds.
If the british spionbossen has the right so is the amazing French spionserien ”False identity” of the outermost cutting edge. In the fourth season, presented by comic artist Eric Rochant moved the series ' geopolitical focus from Syria to Russia – the modern cyberkrigets shrouded the epicenter. And what is more gratifying than to move a series of under cover agents with fejkidentiteter to the country that gave the world Matrjosjka doll - a doll, in a doll, in a doll...
the renegade spymaster, Guillaume ”Malotru” Debailly in a foodtruck in Moscow. Mathieu Kassovitz agent who was so skilled an actor and manipulatör that he was a security risk for his own organization is now a hunted quarry of both the ICE-supporters, the CIA, and his former employer, the DGSE.
Even if the charismatic Malotru manage to seduce a Russian woman, will be the honeymoon short. Of course, it is only a matter of time before he is captured by the Russian counterespionage, and forced to give into a sophisticated horse trading with a knipslug FSB-officer.
Of fear to disclose the identity of the active agents on the field, unfortunately I have to hemligstämpla the rest of the document. However, I can reveal that ”False identity” while this season holds the style as the 2000-century's most captivating and brilliant spionserie. A kind of spionvärldens 5G series is better than any other reflects the real underrättelsevärldens digital conversion.
of course, the human price for being in an inhuman environment. No one carries the suffering with more mystique and charisma than the Mathieu Kassovitz. His tormented and pressured the agent who literally lost everything - after years of maskspel, lies and fejkidentiteter.
He is a man who has learned the lesson that if you lie on the job at the wrong time so have to continue. Lies can have consequences that cannot be overlooked." Malotru has forced the provision of his life ever since he violated his own ascetic arbetsplatsregler and began a forbidden love affair with the married syriac scholar Nadja El Mansour (played by Zineb Tikri) in Damascus. The more he has tried to put things right, the more he becomes snared in its own network. Now struggling Malotru just to save his soul.
But even if the most luxurious of these is the series for years, so is the series ' greatest asset, yet the collective, with a perfectly composed set of characters. Here are care down to the smallest supporting role. In the new season, the cool ethereal Marine Loiseau (Sara Giraudeau) got a new job that “seismologist” in Moscow.
skrivbordsanalytikern Jonas (Victor Artus Solaro) to show their prowess on the field by trying to find and stop French jihadists in Iraq and Syria. Also the young cybersnillet César (Stefan Crépon) faces new challenges on the job. And, not least, the newcomer ”JJA” (played by the brilliant Mathieu Amalric), a paranoid manager who wants to scour and skadereglera after Malotrus rampage.
As spionserie is ”False identity” in a league of its own and is it like most of the other more showinriktade genrekonkurrenter not: nuanced, enigmatisk, oglamorös, soulful, subtle, and underspelad. ”False identity” whispers discreetly, is moving in a snail's pace and sneaks under the radar but is still more thrilling, smart and exciting than any other. Add smart spionoperationer with French finesse and a subtle parisian humour - et voilà, you have one of the most legendary tv-series.
