What the press thinks …
According to Télé 7 jours:
“A rhythmic thriller with a well-crafted plot that raises societal and cultural issues, all served by an excellent duo of actors, Maud Baecker-Nicolas Marié, endearing and complementary.” 3.5 / 5
According to Cable Sat TV:
“Well conducted and unpredictable, the survey is above all the pretext to approach with kindness the societal subject of the acceptance of homosexuality within the family and within religion.” 3/5
According to Télé Loisirs:
“A mismatched duo of investigators which arouses interest but a rather banal plot. Too bad for the actors, invested.” 2.5 / 5
According to Télé Z:
“Reassuring, Nicolas Marié, in the costume of the cop with the bottle, saves this investigation by taking under his wing Maud Baecker, annoying in her role of giver of lessons. A duo too antagonistic to seduce.” 2/5
According to Télérama:
“Diluted for an hour and a half, the plot runs out of steam very quickly. And the spectator will have to deploy treasures of patience to finally know the name of the murderer, revealed after an endless series of interrogation scenes.” 1/5
