This January 12 on France 2 viewers will find Arié Elmaleh and Barbara Schulz in “Drame en haute mer”. This is a marine thriller that deals with the mysterious sinking of a trawler. Inspired by a true story, the TV movie evokes this terrible human drama and the difficulties of the investigation.
High seas drama : What is it about ?
France 2 presents this January 12 a new TV movie High seas drama, based on the terrible story of Bugaled Breizh (“Children of Brittany” in Breton) which is a subject that is still very sensitive for some Bretons. Indeed, in January 2004 a trawler from Loctudy suddenly sank, causing the death of its five sailors. This terrible story marked the spirits because an investigation was carried out and many theses have been made in order to find out what could have happened to this boat. Unfortunately no official explanation could not be brought …
The scenario of High drama sea is inspired by this event. We follow Captain Lenormand, his son and three other crew members who are at sea aboard the trawler Le Dolmen when suddenly the boat sinks, pulled to the bottom. When she hears the news of the sinking, Nolwenn Lenormand is convinced that a maneuvering submarine is responsible. She decides to conduct the investigation herself so that the case is not closed. For his part, Gilles Pezenec, the gendarme responsible for carrying out the investigations, sees things getting complicated quickly when we discover on board a sixth body, unknown to all, who was murdered.
A mysterious investigation
It was the director Adeline Darraux who took charge of this project, of Breton origin and very touched by this subject, she chose Arié Elmaleh (The trainee) and Barbara Schulz (Gloria, Replacing) to embody the police tandem. Couple in the city, they had already given the cue in The Mystery of the Lake and Nadia. These atypical investigators give another dimension to this story, thus fiction stands out largely from other police programs usually broadcast on France 2. The emphasis is on the human tragedy and the consequences of this tragedy on the relatives of the victims.
We also find the actress Virginie Hocq coming out of her comfort zone by playing a dramatic character. The casting is completed by François Loriquet (A French village), Stephan Wojtowicz, but also Emeline Faure and Louis Duneton (More beautiful life) both recently seen in Rousseau’s fault.
High seas drama is actually available on the Salto platform and will be broadcast this Wednesday, January 12 on France 2.
