Indeed, he plays here Andreas Meyer a Swiss policeman, very serious. The latter shares the poster with Clémentine Poidatz, seen recently in A man of honor, and Thierry Frémont who appeared recently in the series Luther or in the unit Death is in the meadow. The actor keeps sacred memories of the shoot, as revealed TV 7 days :
The first day, it was minus 27 ° C. We froze in place and even had difficulty speaking. We had to equip ourselves with high mountain clothing. That said, as we were lucky to be able to shoot, in the midst of the Covid-19 epidemic, it was an enchanting parenthesis.
The 90-minute TV movie was shot in Haute Maurienne, in the magnificent landscapes of the Vanoise massif. A sumptuous decor that seduced the press if we are to believe the various reviews. So, even if the scenario may seem a bit heavy and classic, the realization remains effective. The presence of the various actors also gives relief to this dark history.
