REVIEW

“Personnages farfelus et attachants, ballets sur les toits de Paris… Ce premier film au charme désuet est une belle réussite. –Les Inrockuptibles

“A biting comedy”– Télérama

“A retiring detective and crafty burglar play cat and mouse through the streets, inside the apartments and across the rooftops of Paris. Though it hardly breaks new ground, this cunning debut from writer-director Lucas Bernard is a pleasant throwback to the whodunits of the 1960s and ’70s, as well as a very Gallic homage to the art of the steal.” – Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter
