Netflix Announces ‘The Takedown’ As Its New Action Film

In a published article in Netflix Life, De l’autre côté du périph, sometimes known as On the Other Side of the Tracks, was a 2012 French film.

Plot of ‘Takedown’

Ousmane Diakité and François Monge, two French detectives from very different backgrounds, reconnect for a fresh investigation in France. However, Ousmane and François find themselves embroiled in a far more complex criminal inquiry than they bargained for.

Both Ousmane Diakité (Omar Sy) and François Monge (Laurent Lafitte) are officers, yet they are worlds apart in terms of personalities, training, and experiences. Once again, the unusual duo finds themselves working together on a case that takes them throughout the whole country of France. A simple drug trade turns out to be a high-stakes criminal case that’s laced with danger and surprising humor.
