REVIEW

Leave it up to the French to craft a delectable Agatha Christie-style caper whose main characters include a famous literary critic, a deceased best-selling author and his bookworm daughter, an ambitious young publisher and an up-and-coming writer.

  • Hollywood Reporter

Le duo Camille Cottin, dans la peau de la fille Pick, et Fabrice Luchini, reconverti en fin limier de bibliothèque, fait belle impression. Bref, tout ceci est virtuose à plus d’un titre.
