From this unlikely encounter between two beings that everything opposes is born an irresistible duet. We are won over by the story, both funny and sensitive, by the acting, remarkable, by the characters carrying beautiful promises. Not to miss !

I loved it! The promo had me looking out for it on Showcase and when I caught it over the weekend I was pleasantly surprised at the high grade production value and the stellar acting of the principal characters. The premise while done was given a new spin which made it exciting. I am looking forward to many more episodes and a run of many years.

Arsène Lupin makes emulators ... International co-production with visibly important means, this police comedy aims to blow up the bank with a charming bandit inspired by Cary Grant in ``To Catch a Thief`` or Georges Clooney in ``Ocean's Eleven``. In this role, Jean-Yves Berteloot does the job without showing off.

Télérama

An inspired creation, very attractive.

Télé Câble-Satellite

This pilot of an international series is very pleasant and the duo Berteloot / Bregar works perfectly.

I Loved this show. I thought it was going in one direction and then had a wonderful twist. I loved the characters, the music, the location and scenery!!!! Can’t wait to see more of this show. My son was asking me when the next one is on. Hopefully this will be soon.
