What is it about ?
Judge Daniel had his heyday in the 80s, for ruling on a van robbery case in Lisieux. He was found hanged in the old prison of Pont-l’Evêque. Both cops, Julien and Franck Roussel, two brothers who oppose everything, are forced to investigate this crime together, which returns them to the origin of their discord: the shared love for Marion Letellier, the victim’s clerk.

What the press thinks …
According to Télé-Loisirs:
“A rather successful episode of the” Murders in … “collection, which is based on a solid cast and script.” 4/5
According to Cable Sat TV:
“The success of this TV movie is due to three elements: the investigation unpredictable enough to titillate the attention, the often inspired staging and the convincing trio of main actors.” 3/5
According to Télé 7 jours:
“If the duo of gendarmes interpreted by Arnaud Binard and Antoine Hamel works wonderfully, this investigation multiplies the tracks at the risk of leading us astray. Nevertheless, it has the merit of featuring protagonists with strong characters.” 2.5 / 5
According to Télé Z:
“The story is unnecessarily complicated, luckily the trio of lead actors are sober and fair.” 2.5 / 5
According to Télérama:
“(…) it would be useful to bring a pencil to try to scribble a family tree and to better understand the temporality of this bloated fiction. It would be in vain.” 1/5
