Monsieur Spade S01E02 1080p WEB-DL DD5.1 x265
Monsieur Spade (2024) Clive Owen plays an older Sam Spade in 1960's France. He had been hired by the late Bridget O'Shaughnessy (remember her from the "Maltese Falcon") to deliver her daughter, Teresa (Cara Bossom) to her supposed husband (?) Philippe Saint-Andre (Jonathan Zaccai). Philippe is a shady/dangerous character. The local Chief of Police, Patrice Michaud (Denis Menochet) isn't crazy about Philippe and Sam meeting. The language and spacing has a definite Dashiell Hammett sound to it. Yeah, Clive Owen isn't a Bogie, but he comes pretty damn close. His sarcasm, bravery, and street-smarts serve him well. In the first episode, we don't even see him carry a gun but he can be a tough-guy when he needs to be. My wife thought it was kind of slow and there is a bunch of subtitles. I've only seen the first episode, but I'm looking forward to seeing more episodes.
