Philippe Caroit: Commissioner Roche is a distant avatar of Lieutenant Columbo. He plays cat and mouse with Irene. There is a little game of seduction between them …
No, because there is no acting performance. And the police dramaturgy is quite light, since the public knows, from the start, who did it.
