French Traduire


An explosive tandem between two cops who have a priori nothing in common: one white, Sonny Crockett (Don Johnson), Divorced Play-Boy, rolling in Ferrari, and living alone, reclusive on a boat in the company of a ALLIGATOR, and the other, Ricardo Tubbs (Philip Michael Thomas), Métissé New York, attached to family traditions, who came to Miami to try to find the assassin of his brother.

A very "trendy" credits: tones pastels on the background of the turquoise sea, flamingos pink and luscious naiads, all cutting out on immense white buildings crushed from sun: this is the image of Miami, fourth financial place in the United States , lair of billionaires, and above all, hub of all traffic.

A radically new tone: Hard Rock, Funky Music, Reggae Sound often replace the dialogues while the biggest names in rock, from Miles Davis, to Phil Collins, via James Brown, Little Richard, and even Bruce Willis, come Play the "guest stars".

An elliptical montage, images that parade to the rhythm of music, bright colors sometimes overexposed ...

Michael Mann, the producer, made Miami vice a kind of video clip. A very particular look for the two heroes: dressed like real play-boys, driving a Ferrari Daytona (confiscated from a trafficker), they are more "fashion engraving" than urban cops and detonate completely within this community dealers, assassins, heroin traffickers with which Miami is infested.

A realism at the limits of violence: the shooting was carried out in the city of Miami, between spring 84 and that of 89. Faced with violence, very crude tone, drug stories, and the influx of tourists who came in The hope of seeing their two idols, the municipality quickly opposed the shooting in the streets ...

An unprecedented media phenomenon: even the CEO of the NBC chain wanted to be included - it is bartender in one of the episodes.

The two actors, Don Johnson and Philip Michael Thomas, were named "honorary citizens" of Miami ... unheard of on television!
