Our take

Complete mini-series in three episodes, this very unusual production, adapted from a German novel; approaches a unlikely issue, mix of suspense, fantasy and metaphysics. Supported by an incredible cast, director Dominique Rocher, noticed for his first feature film La nuit a dévoré le monde, confirms that he is one of the most intriguing figures of the fantasy genre in France.
