According to Télé 7 jours:
“Thanks to a careful staging, embellished by the sublime natural settings of the Calanques de Cassis, the director Claude-Michel Rome offers us a very exotic TV movie. The well-crafted plot and the duo of investigators camped by Philippe Bas and Shemss Audat, should seduce viewers. ” 3/5

“The promise was beautiful, yet the result is quite disappointing. Despite their potential, actors are not solicited at fair value. There remains the investigation, rather well constructed. ” 2/5
