France 2 is launching the broadcast of the mini-series “Contre toi” this evening. Here, Virginie Ledoyen plays a woman threatened with death who falls under the spell of her bodyguard… A success?

What is it about ?

Esther and Fred Cavalieri form a flamboyant couple deeply united with their two children. So why does Esther, a woman seemingly without history and without enemies, find herself in mortal danger?

To protect her, Fred hires Mathias, a bodyguard, while the police find the culprit. However, in their daily promiscuity, Esther and Mathias will develop an intimacy that irremediably attracts them to each other. And this sensual tension is a real danger for this family.

Can Esther continue to trust those close to her? Who wants harm to the Cavalieri?

Against you is a mini-series whose first two episodes are broadcast on Wednesday June 19, 2024, from 9:10 p.m. on France 2. Wednesday June 26, the last two parts will be offered to viewers, same time, same channel.

Who is it with?

In Against You, Virginie Ledoyen plays Esther. She therefore shares the poster for this fiction with Charlie Dupont (Fred Cavalieri) and Lannick Gautry (Mathias). All three also play opposite Marie Zabukovec (recently seen in Tout pour Agnès), Déborah Krey, Juliette Navis and the young actors Lilas-Rose Gilberti and Abel Memmi.

Fabienne Lesieur and Johanne Rigoulot created and wrote the series, Christophe Lamotte took care of the production.

It’s worth checking out ?

After a stint in the series The Island of 30 Coffins, Nona and Her Daughters and They were 10, we have the pleasure of finding Virginie Ledoyen in a new TV drama. Here, the actress slips into the skin of Esther, this woman appearing sometimes as a victim, sometimes as a potential liar.

The actress is quite convincing in the interpretation of this duplicity and places the viewer in doubt as to whether or not to believe Esther at the start of the mini-series. His character is intriguing and sometimes even elusive. The only one who really seems to trust Esther is ultimately Mathias, hired to be her bodyguard.

Then begins their rapprochement… until they both give in to temptation! The alchemy works between Virginie Ledoyen and Lannick Gautry. Esther and Mathias thus share an undeniable connection, both spiritual and intimate.

A certain tension is maintained throughout the four episodes of Against You. The outcome is even rather surprising! Regarding the images, the director shows pretty spaces in a natural environment.

We are also surprised to find a special guest: Messi, the animal star who plays Esther’s family dog, seen in Anatomy of a Fall!

Despite everything, we deplore some lengths and a lack of modernity in the staging sometimes. Finally, we regret that the sliders are not pushed further to establish a darker and sexy atmosphere, in order to allow this thriller to move to an undoubtedly higher level.

Contre toi is broadcast this Wednesday, June 19, at 9:10 p.m. on France 2.
