Captain Marianne Aubrais is a detective with the Le Havre Police Department. Should she believe a child who tells her that his mother is not his mother? After all, she is busy investigating a robbery that happened months ago. Stolen goods worth hundreds of thousands of euros have not been recovered and two fugitives are still at large. But if the kid's story is not pure fantasy, it would be truly criminal to ignore it. The little boy's memories are fading. If he is telling the truth, will he never grow up to be the adult he should have become? Will he finally be forced to accept the unthinkable and allow himself to be raised by a woman who may have abducted him? Written by Happy_Evil_Dude

The Other Mother
25 August 2020 | by TweekumsSee all my reviews

This French series is set in Le Havre; a child psychologist is called in when a three and a half year old boy, Malone, claims that his parents aren't his real parents. Believing the child he contacts Captain Marianne Aubrais, a detective in the local police. She is busy with a serious case involving a robbery which left one officer and two thieves, dead and another two criminals being looked for. She agrees to look into the psychologist's claims as he believes Malone will soon lose his memories of his real mother.

I enjoyed this series; it started with an intriguing idea and developed it nicely. Inevitably there were some clichés but others were nicely avoided in ways I didn't expect. The characters were interesting and mostly sympathetic... the villain however was suitably villainous. The cast was solid; most notably Anne Charrier, who was great as Marianne; Pascal Elbé, as her friend and colleague Papy; and Emmanuel Bonami as the villain Zerda. Young Tom d'Ornano really impressed as Malone. Local settings were nicely incorporated into the story as Malone talks of seeing a castle and a wrecked pirate ship which turn out to be landmarks adapted for a child's imagination. At just six episodes the series doesn't drag on, neither does it feel rushed. Overall I'd certainly recommend this to anybody who enjoys crime dramas and is looking for something a little different.

These comments are based on watching the series in French with English subtitles.
