After “Polar Day” and “Nox”, Canal + will launch at the beginning of November its new original creation “Possessions” with Reda Kateb and Nadia Tereszkiewicz.
After successfully launching its parody series La Flamme by and with Jonathan Cohen last night, Canal + will broadcast from Monday, November 2 Possessions, its new original creation premiered at the La Rochelle 2020 festival. Franco-Israeli production, this thriller was created and scripted by Shachar Magen, an Israeli journalist and screenwriter who cut his teeth on the series Sirens, a big success in his country of origin. He is assisted in his task by Thomas Vincent who previously directed episodes for Versailles and Bodyguard.
When Natalie, a young French expatriate in Israel, is accused of having murdered her husband on his wedding night, Karim, a French diplomat, will try to help him. But the more the investigation advances, the more he is fascinated by Natalie, without however succeeding in knowing if the young woman is deeply lost and vulnerable, or formidably manipulative. Obsessed by this affair, Karim will dive into the mysterious past of Natalie and her family.
Casting side, it is Reda Kateb who will play Karim, this young French diplomat of Algerian origin posted in a hostile country. The mysterious character of Natalie, who in many ways evokes certain Hitchcockian heroines, is played by Nadia Tereszkiewicz, a young Franco-Finnish actress seen in The Dancer and Persona non grata. They are accompanied by Noa Koler and Tzahi Grad, two renowned actors in Israel, who play here the two police officers leading the investigation. Dominique Valadié, Tchéky Karyo, Ariane Ascaride, Aloïse Sauvage and Roy Nik complete the cast of this mini-series.
Find Possessions from Monday November 2 at 9 p.m. on Canal +.
