Ingrid Diesel and Lola Jost, the whacky duo from Passage of Desire, come back to lead the investigation after the mysterious death of Alice, a friend’s daughter.
While getting ready for her act as the double of Britney Spears, she “fell from the 34th floor”. A videographer shot everything, and all the television channels fight to get the images of the pseudo suicide.
Le Monde des livres
« This Alice fable crossed over to the other side of the mirror provides Dominique Sylvain the opportunity for a subtle reflection about the role of image in our society, its political use - for example within the context of blackmail - but also all forms of manipulation and the morbid taste of our contemporaries for reality television. »
La Liberté de l’Est
« Dominique Sylvain has recreated with brio the interdependent life of a district whose café-restaurant is the center, and where a likeable bunch search for a bit of company. »
« Incisive dialogue and a corrosive style that scoff at the TF1 [television channel] motto : What we sell to Coca-Cola is available human brain time. »
