The Press Reviews

  • A juicy, real-life plot gets almost perversely passionless treatment. Full Review

  • This tale of wealth, passion and (possibly) murder, executed in a style that’s visually high gloss yet narratively muddy, comes across like an old-fashioned TV mini-series. Full Review

  • It will be tricky for audiences beyond France to connect to this true-crime thriller, which amounts to a waxworks re-creation of the Nice casino wars. Full Review
