The Red Shadows

The Red Shadows

1993. Five year old Clara Garnier is kidnapped. Her abductors are demanding a very high ransom in exchange for her release. But the day of the exchange ends in a bloodbath; Clara’s mother is killed and the child vanishes. Is she dead or alive? The ongoing mystery causes much distress for her family and the local community. 25 years later, Clara’s older sister Aurore, a police officer investigating a murder, uncovers clues to prove her sister is still alive. She is living under another identity in Italy without any knowledge of her own origins. Against her sceptical father and brothers’ wishes, she persuades Clara to come back to her family to help her discover the truth behind the kidnapping. But Clara’s return unravels family secrets and triggers a series of violent events.

Maybe I was expecting too much after reading the reviews but I agree with Viau. The storyline is quite predictable and boring (full disclosure: I did not even finish episode 3). All in all, it feels like a glorified soap opera. But if you want to work on your French or use it as a background while ironing or knitting, go for it.

Drama centered around a family secret and a crime and how interwoven each family member is to it and not - with beautiful locations, solid plot, and well developed characters it's a compelling series but not at the same level as Rivera (also found on Sundance).
