France 3 is broadcasting the brand new detective series “Face à face” on Tuesday, March 15. Claire Borotra replies to Constance Gay. The two investigators will have to learn to work hand in hand.
Face to face: What is it about?
France 3 offers a new detective series entitled Face to face. Worn by Claire Borotra and Constance Gay, this fiction features an examining magistrate, Justine Rameau, who will have to work with Vanessa Tancelin, his half-sister came out of nowhere. The latter is a cop straight in her boots, who was transferred to Strasbourg precisely to be closer to her sister whom she wishes to get to know. In fact, since his earliest childhood, she wants at all costs to meet her big sister.
This meeting is obviously not going to happen as she had imagined. On the work side, they both use diametrically opposed methods. The two women will have to abandon their small personal resentments, in order to concentrate on complex criminal cases with which they are faced.
What awaits us
The series is made up of twelve 52-minute episodes. Each episode is based on an article on the penal code. The first episode broadcast on March 15 is called A place to take. A man blames himself for the murder of his office colleague instead of his daughter, whose existence he has just discovered. To find the culprit, the police need DNA evidence. Unfortunately, the suspect refuses and justice cannot force him to do so.
The same evening, a second episode was broadcast, titled Such is taken who thought he was taking. The two women will be confronted with a very complex case because nothing goes as planned. A woman is arrested for murder. As a result, she is indicted where she has access to the file regarding the death of his twin brother. Once released, the latter will try to do justice to herself…
A perfect cast
The magistrate very on horseback with the procedure and the rules is therefore interpreted by Claire Borotra. As for the volcanic sister, it is the actress Constance Gay who slips into Vanessa’s skin. Pascale Demolon embodies the husband of the examining magistrate who finds himself slightly wedged between the two sisters.
Marc Richman, who we recently saw on France 2 in the series Handling and who will soon be in The house opposite, a mini-series with Julie de Bona, completes the cast. Clémentine Justine plays a policewoman who is more comfortable inside the police station than on the ground. Finally Philipa Phoenix, seen in the series Balthazarwill also be part of the cast of this brand new fiction.
The series is already fully available on the Salto platform.
