This Wednesday, June 19, 2024, France 2 begins broadcasting its new fiction, the thriller “Contre toi”, with Lannick Gautry and Virginie Ledoyen, in particular. Is this series, on air this evening and June 26, worth a watch?

If Lannick Gautry declared a few weeks ago puremedias.com that he had “no desire to become the eternal boss of French TV“, in “Contre toi”, he does not play an active cop but a former cop who became a bodyguard. His character, Mathias, is responsible for ensuring the protection of Esther, played by Virginie Ledoyen. This teacher, mother of two children, a priori without history and wife of a printing company boss, is threatened. She is the victim of several murder attempts.

A dark thriller, which ultimately turns out to be thrilling

Attempts against her life of which there is never a witness, so that no one seems to believe her, except her husband, played by Charlie Dupont, who hires the famous bodyguard to stick to her coattails. The relationship that develops between the characters of Virginie Ledoyen and Lannick Gautry is interesting. If at the start, they are like cats and dogs and do not seem to like each other at all, this relationship will evolve and take a completely different turn, to the great displeasure of their respective spouses.

Spouses not beyond reproach either. Indeed, “Contre toi” could ultimately have been called “Everyone lies” – but the title was already taken by a previous fiction broadcast on France 2 in August 2022 and which had a sequel last March – as each character seems to have secrets. Which, in the end, gives a very mysterious aspect to the fiction and enriches the plot.

Because if the first episodes can seem a little slow – the plot still takes its time to settle down – it settles down and even becomes thrilling from the third episode, the end of which offers a big cliffhanger.

The main point, namely “who is after the life of Virginie Ledoyen’s character?”, and the entire series are relatively dark. However, the character of Laura, Esther’s sister, played by Déborah Krey (Duchess in the detective series “Les invisibles” on France 2) brings color to “Contre toi” thanks to her slightly more fanciful side.
