La Belle Epoque era political intrigue loosely based on historical fact. Stylish production makes this a wonderfully entertaining movie in the same vein as Arsene Lupin.

Goodish movie, which is more than one can usually say for French movies. Started very well, but lost focus, and dragged on too long.

mielenkiintoinen aikakausi, johon leffa sijoittuu. Loppua kohti paranee, mutta alku jotenkin mielenkiinnoton ja sekava. Paremman puutteessa siis katsottava :)

Très belle série. Très moyen film.

"Les Experts" en 1907.
A mon sens, une adaptation intéressante d'une série à succès, ce qui est toujours un exercice périlleux.

une adaptation ratée de la série: les scenaristes n'ont rien compris à l'esprit de la série!
Et si on ferme les yeux sur cela on est quand même devant un film aux décors eet aux bbeaux costumes mais d'un ennui quasi mortel ! Alors oui la mort de Bonot est quasi fidéle à la réalité mais sinon que l'histoire fait tiree par les cheveux !!
un ratage !

J'ai trouvé ce film long a démarrer. Je crois, selon mes gouts, que les francais devraient laisser les films d' action a d' autres.

1912. This film shows the exploits of France's first motorized police brigade.

An excellent film, with a lot of action, wonderful costumes and settings, and a great international cast, from Stefano Accorsi, to Gerard Jugnot, to Diane Kruger. Everyone is truly outstanding.
Beautiful photography and perfect direction.
Some parts of the script unfortunately doesn't quite work, but otherwise the story plays out well though its ending is predictable.

Recommended viewing.

L'intrigue est un peu compliquée à suivre mais c'est un bon film. Clovis Cornillac se défend bien dans son rôle. Les décors et les costumes sont vraiment réussis.

Bonne surprise! Bonne recuperation cinematographique d'une situation historique confuse. Un peu tire par les cheveux tout de meme mais bon... Bono, Jaures, les emprunts russes,la triple entente, ca fait beaucoup de melanges. L'image et la reconstitution est tres soignee. Les acteurs sont credibles. Diane Kruger est irresistible. Pas grand chose a voir avec la serie d'origine.

Efficace avec un reproche: moins d'humour que dans la série

A good story written by 2 good comics books authors about a non well know part of french history, good characters who are humans whith their dark side and a good mix between action and reflexion.
Only one bad thiing the director who make an academic movie with some good ideas

French cinema is among the best in the world. And no matter what, you will always get a wellstructured piece of work from french filmmakers. This goes also for "Les Brigades du Tigre". The visuals, scenery, the action, plot and acting is of high standard. I think the problem is the characters and the storyline. It´s somewhat a bit messy and at times a bit unclear. And you never get a proper chance to feel anything for any of the characters. You just don´t care.

French movies usually get me bored, but that one is an exception! That very interesting detective story, that takes place in the France of the early twentieth century, is skillfully played by some amazing actors among whom Clovis Cornillac and Edouard Baer. A good surprise!

Compelling but too violent and convoluted for me. Diane Kruger is lovely!

Directed by Jerome Cornuau
Starring Clovic Cornillac, Diane Kruger, Edouard Baer, Olivier Gourmet, Stefano Accorsi

Seemingly inspired by De Palma?s ?The Untouchables? with set decoration by ?The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.? A combination French history lesson and too glossy police drama, ?The Tiger Brigade? is very well-made and heavily produced complete with all the elements of its genre. The cast was nicely picked, an interesting array of appealing character faces with a known actress in the middle. I was a bit surprised to learn that Kruger actually made her debut in France before coming to Hollywood and making three movies in a row. German-born, speaks French with a beauty that could launch a thousand ships. That?s why she conquered Hollywood so easily.
Best Scene: Last man?s barn stand.
