The Fury (Rapl, 2016)
Director: Jan Pachl
Detective Kuneš’s temper is as quick as his wits. It is a gift but also his punishment. Forsaking the capital for the rustic landscapes of the borderlands, this police detective with a troubled soul finds himself in a place with secrets as dark as his own. Eurochannel premieres the detective series The Fury.
Set in the most dangerous region of the Czech Republic, The Fury follows Detective Kuneš in his last chance within the police. To avoid dishonorable discharge, his boss has a solution for him, she assigns him to a remote borderland. There's only one catch. His real mission is to clarify a cold case: the murder of a female cop.
Divided into 13 action-packed episodes, The Fury delivers what it promises: anger, mystery, suspense, and plenty of action. In a story that combines stories of the local mafia, personal rivalries, bureaucratic politicians, and incompetent colleagues, detective Kuneš soon becomes the hero. Not for his kindness but rather for his rash personality and effective results.
Depicting the darkest side of a harrowing society, The Fury combines the best of TV noir, with great acting and a twisting plot, to deliver a masterful detective drama series worth binging. Those same characteristics earned the series a nomination for a Czech Lion (the most prestigious films and TV awards in the Czech Republic) and one at Prix Europa for best TV Fiction Series.
Eurochannel invites you to the Czech borderlands where crime, prostitution, drug dealing and desolation is at its highest. There, only one man will be able to fix it all, and discover the darkest secrets of the place and himself.
