This is absolutely breathtaking. The series is very well produced, the acting is superb and the snapshots of Berlins area - Kreuzkölln (Kreuzberg and Neukölln give a good insight of the area. The series is quite brutal. The acting is honest and quite realistic. Opposite most other German TV productions the actors do not overact and this gives the whole story a down to earth appearance. What I like about 4Blocks is that you are seduced to believe the actions of the characters are plausible. If you like stories about crime, drugs and thug life do yourself a favor and don't miss out on this one.
