Inhuman Resources – Netflix
Recently I spotted the headline of an article about a series on Netflix that said anyone who was a fan of ‘Ozark’ needed to watch it. Well, anything even close to ‘Ozark’ I knew I needed to check out. I am here to say that while it is NOT another ‘Ozark’, it is still a good series with a lot of suspense, intrigue, action and drama. This is a French series called ‘Derapages’ or ‘Inhuman Resources.’
The story centers around Alain Delambre, played by Eric Cantana, who opens the series by telling what happened to him.
Alain is an unemployed, 57 year old man, desperate to find a good job to make him feel vital and important again. He has been without a job for 6 years and the stress is beginning to take a toll on him, his and their marriage. He is even short with his two daughters and it is also impacting his relationship with them. All seems lost when he allows for a job with a company and gets an interview.
The catch is that this job is one where he has to be able to participate in a staged hostage situation with selected executives of a major company. Alain decides to go with it but does some side work on his own with a close friend who just happens to be a computer hacker and helps Alain gather information about the company and CEO. Needless to say Alain sees a way to take advantage of the situation and he is put in but it does not come without consequences as he is found out.
This is sometimes a hard show to follow but it is still definitely worth a watch.
