What does the press think?
According to Télé Loisirs:
“A cleverly maintained suspense.” 3.5 / 5
According to Télé Z:
“Biot, its mimosas, its olive trees, its craftsmanship and… its impenetrable clan secrets. The climate is sunny, the tone pleasant, the intrigue light and unpretentious.” 3.5 / 5
According to Télé 7 jours:
“The investigation is stretching a bit, but what a pleasure to find the sparkling Florence Pernel as vice-prosecutor a bit whimsical. The guest Stéphane Blancafort brings the warm side that we know him in Tandem.” 3/5
According to Cable TV Sat:
“Beyond the plot, rather classic, the interest of this episode lies in its band of performers, whether they are guests or regular.” 3/5
According to Télérama:
“We look in vain for the slightest trace of originality in this ultra predictable story, where each scene seems a pretext to indefinitely delay the moment of the final revelation. (…) Boring as possible.” 0.5 / 5
