The body of 19 year old Driss Assani, a footballer with Heiderfeld football club is pulled out of the river Semois, a stones throw from Heiderfeld, a small town of a few thousand inhabitants in the Belgian Ardennes.

I love well told TV-series with some depth, shock or excitement, but this shallow depiction of the citizens of Heiderfeld doesn't move me one bit nor entice me to finish this one off.
Yoann Blanc plays the most interesting character (Peeters), but after three episodes I had to give up also him. Everyone else including his daughter Camille, played by Sophie Breyer, are just too boring. I mean boring in the wrong way and I have no problem with slow pacing or anything like that, but I want to be able care at all. As a viewer you just don't care about these people. I don't need to watch something I don't care to learn anything about.
Overall the quality of acting is lower than expected, which I suspect stems from the director Matthieu Donck rather than a bad script necessarily. I could see this story unfolding in an interesting way that would have kept my interest.
I'm dropping this one. Life's too short and there are so many more interesting stories.
