Own the hit Belgian crime series out to buy next week!
The outrageous black comedy of criminal errors has been delivering shocking, incongruous laughs to UK audiences. Following its eagerly anticipated season finale, The Out-Laws is available to buy on Nordic Noir & Beyond DVD from Monday 19th September!
If you haven’t been keeping up to date with The Out-Laws, here’s a run-down of the scandalous shenanigans you can expect to enjoy! The series begins with the funeral of Jean-Claude. However, the Goethals sisters are far from mourning this loss. In a series of flashbacks, each episode leads us to find out who killed the evil brother-in-law. After the somewhat estranged Goethals clan reconnect in the wake of their parents’ death, it comes to light that the women blame Goedele’s marriage to the despicable Jean-Claude for their distance. Often compared to the style of Desperate Housewives, The Out-Laws hatches a plot by the vengeful sisters to kill Jean-Claude in various attempts. Follow them as they try to get away with murder and take their dark secret to the grave.
Now the 10-episode series is coming to home entertainment shelves, Crime Time Preview reviews the appeal of the show:“They do dark chocolate quite well in Belgium and it seems dark crime comedies are also a skill,” and “The Out-Laws is full of malicious humour and has been praised mightily everywhere from Mumsnet to The Guardian. It’s also told in a delightfully offbeat format with the action switching from the present to the past, and back again.” The Guardian states The Out-Laws is: “a hit in its home country, it won most popular series and best drama in the Belgian version of the BAFTAs,” and also comments on the satirical storyline: “Each failed murder attempt sees the humour sharpen, as the gulf between planning and literal execution widens. Death by paintball, gas explosion or hitman, it transpires, are easier to dream up than carry out.”
Created by Malin-Sarah Gozin, whose inspirations are Alan Ball’s Six Feet Under, The Out-Laws (also known as The Clan) stars Barbara Sarafian, Kristine Van Pellicom, Ruth Becquart, Maaike Neuville as the Goethals sisters, with Inge Paulussen, Dirk Roofthooft and Geert Van Rampelberg (The Treatment).
The Out-Laws is released on DVD Monday 19th September from Nordic Noir & Beyond. Pre-order your copy now from the Amazon store.
