Three years after Vanished by the Lake, Lise and Clovis are now by another lake, in Annecy, and face the challenge of a new family life with their nine-month-old son Tom as the couple takes on a demanding new investigation.
Julie De Bona,
Following the Guernon case in the mid 2000s, captain Pierre Niémans was transferred to the head of the Central Office against violent crime (OCCS). This new confidential unit deals with the most complex cases, where the clues are few and where serial murders must be resolved as quickly as possible. It is during a particularly difficult mission that Niémans stumbles upon his best pupil and spiritual daughter, Camille Delaunay.Written by
None of the characters ring true, their dialogue and delivery is often laughable. The elements feel like the imaginings of stoned high-schoolers... "Wouldn't this be cool?" Nothing feels mysterious, curious, or intricate: it's as if the film is being made up as it goes along.

Very handsomely produced, but with zero intrigue or genuineness. There's a saying that actors never really know the show a director is creating. This reeks of over-direction, actors over-reacting in almost every situation. When dialogue, behavior, plot and elements are this uniformly poor, it begins with the writers, but the director of The Crimson Rivers failed to rectify anything.
