Description

Based on real-life accounts by former French spies, The Bureau tells the story of a man torn between love and loyalty, in a world where a single lie can kill. When French intelligence officer Guillaume "Malotru" Debailly (Mathieu Kassovitz) returns to Paris after six years as an undercover agent in Syria, he struggles to reconnect with his daughter, ex-wife, colleagues and even, his old self. But after learning that his lover in Syria (Nadia, played by Zineb Triki), is now in Paris, Guillaume breaks agency rules and approaches her as the man he was in Damascus: Paul Lefebvre. As Guillaume begins living a double life, he opens himself up (and DGSE) to new and unprecedented dangers.

    Incredible show. Realistic and driven by human stories. Thank you for taking us on such a delicate ride. Slow paced at first, but that's exactly what makes this show worthy of your precious time. It's not here to capitalize on quick emotions and predictable plots. It seeks to transport you and build up a poignant suspense - that I believed was a forgotten art. Thank you for proving us wrong! Season 3 asap.

    Character driven spy drama. Well-acted and directed, lots of twists and turns. If you like John LeCarre, then this is for you. More cerebral than action oriented, but that is what makes it work.

    *Would be nice to have French subs option as I'm trying to learn French. I am a big fan of spy shows, going back to even Magnum PI, Burn Notice and more recently, Homeland. When I discovered Le Bureau I was really excited to see how well and how ..how do I put this...un-dramatically, even clinically, realistic it was. The show keeps getting better, too. Very impressed.
  • Subtitles should be optional

    Can anyone tell me how to turn off the subtitles? Really annoying that it isn't an option. I'm fluent in French and it's a huge distraction
  • Such a captivating show

    After a couple of episodes things pick up and you can't put it down. Really great characters, slow action but intensive, great acting and writing. Makes you wonder who signs up for a stressful spy life like this, and then you think about the intensity and high that comes with it.
  • Ten Times Better Than Homeland

    Great drama of personal relationships and international affairs with the most interesting spy-craft depictions and real and wonderful locations. English subtitles are well done. Interesting characters presented without giving up the drama. Mostly set in Paris. Like Homeland but ten times better.

    Like so many dramas developed in the Britain and France, this show excels at character development, dialog, and plot intricacy over gun fights and car chases. The portrayal of the DGSE as a small shop heavy on trade-craft made it extremely believable to me as did the portrayal of agents, operatives, and targets as real people. The switching between French, Arabic, and Persian was interesting. There were a few humorous bits, especially the inexact translation of cursing in Farsi (oui, je parle Farsi.) Of course, as in all French dramas, there was a behind-the-scenes conspiracy. Don’t be turned off by the subtitles. I highly recommend this show.
