Boring!
18 May 2015 | by See all my reviews

This series tries too hard but in the end the story is slow and boring. The acting isn't bad though, but it is just a soft porn disguised as art and wrapped in a TV series. And as with porn, the story and the acting is secondary to the sex.

The drama is more frustrating than entertaining.

There is loads of sex in this series, which some might find appealing. However, I would rather watch 2 pineapples have sex than the acted scripted and fake sex in this series.

This is in French with sub titles so another reason people would probably only watch it rather than follow the story.
