According to Télé 7 jours:
“Oscillating between drama and SF, Plan B is a real success which offers a moving and singular score to Julie de Bona.” 4/5
According to La Voix du Nord:
“A few awkward pirouettes and a somewhat repetitive mechanism in the scenario do not detract from the emotional intensity carried by the subject. The reflection sets in, and that’s what you expect from this kind of series tackling a subject as well. distressing. We want to go to the end, which, in itself, is already a guarantee of quality. ” 3.5 / 5
