Paris Enquêtes Criminelles - The Mark of the Angels – Miserere - Netflix
The Mark of the Angels – Miserere (French: La marque des anges – Miserere) is a 2013 French thriller film directed by Sylvain White and based on Jean-Christophe Grangé's 2008 novel Miserere (novel). Headlined by Gérard Depardieu and JoeyStarr, the film is the fifth adaptation of a Grangé novel after The Crimson Rivers, Empire of the Wolves, The Stone Council and Flight of the Storks and the first for which Grangé himself did not collaborate on the screenplay. Instead, the novel was adapted by La Proie and La chance de ma vie co-writers Laurent Turner and Luc Bossi in collaboration with director White and Yann Mège (Paris enquêtes criminelles). The film, which benefitted from a large budget, deals with a series of mysteriours murders, Nazism, private military companies and child abuse. It was poorly received by critics and failed to make an impact at the box office.

Principal photography began on March 26, 2012, and lasted for 55 days with the Alexa Studio, making it the first French film to use the camera. An incident occurred on the very first day of shooting when a stuntman lost control of his motorcycle and fell in the Seine. Sylvain White described the film as very different from anything he'd done from before and was very hand-on throughout filming, even acting as the camera operator for some shots. The film was shot almost entirely on location, approximately 60% in and around Paris, 30% in Belgium and Germany and 10% in Morocco. The École d'Architecture Marne-la-Vallée in Champs-sur-Marne was used for the interiors of Interpol's Lyon headquarters, while the Assumption Colony's concert hall was shot in the French Communist Party's headquarters in Paris, which has been used in many other films, including two others in 2013, such as Mood Indigo. In addition the Church of Saint-Séverin served as the location for the first murder, a scene between Depardieu and Keller occurs at the Paris–Le Bourget Airport, Depardieu investigates at the Mémorial de la Shoah and the bar “Aux Folies” in Belleville, while is apartment is located at Les Olympiades. Emmy-winning production designer Albrecht Konrad worked on the film. A physiotherapist was present on the set in case of injuries. A fight scene in a hospital involving JoeyStarr required a full day's shoot. The Mark of the Angels – Miserere is majoritarily in French, with some subtilted Arabic dialogue in the Moroccan opening and a significant amount of English and German as well as some Spanish in the third act.
