Already available in full on Salto, the “Sophie Cross” series continues this evening on France 3 with a new survey. Was the press thrilled by this detective fiction in three episodes with Alexia Barlier and Thomas Jouannet?
Launched last week on France 3, the Sophie Cross series, with Alexia Barlier (La Forêt, Noces Rouges) and Thomas Jouannet (Nina, Sam) in the main roles, continues tonight at 9:05 p.m. with a new 90-minute episode.
Created by Paul Piedfort, this three-part detective story tells the story of Sophie, a brilliant lawyer whose life falters when Arthur, her 5-year-old son, disappears without leaving a trace. Three years later, when her cop husband, Thomas, thinks they will never see their son, Sophie, who refuses to give up hope, decides to join the police and find Arthur herself.
Has criticism allowed itself to embark on the investigations of Sophie Cross, who also count Cyril Lecomte (Le Temps est assassin), Oussama Kheddam (Hippocrate), and Mariama Gueye (Gloria) as headliners?
What the press thinks …
According to Le Figaro:
“[Sophie Cross] lays the groundwork for a long-term detective fiction, with all the necessary investigations to be carried out, tensions between colleagues and ethics. But it also offers itself as a great love story between two adults deprived of their child, again with all that that implies of pain, tears, disappointed hopes and sessions with the shrink. ” 3.5 / 5
