In 2025, police officers can study crime scenes from every angle in virtual reality rooms. After a murder committed on the beach where his wife Mélanie was found murdered twenty-seven years earlier, Ludovic (Tomer Sisley) discovers that he can use this technology to communicate with her a few days before his death! Separated by more than a quarter of a century, they will investigate together to discover the identity of the murderer and perhaps save Mélanie, even if it means changing the future life of Ludovic, who has founded a new family.

After Balthazar (TF1) and its iconoclastic medical examiner whom he will find for a fifth and final season on January 19, here is a new detective series for Tomer Sisley but in a radically different style which this time mixes thriller and science fiction. “If it was to redo Balthazar, obviously I wouldn’t have accepted, explains the actor. TF1 offered me a ton of other projects to try to keep me on the channel and so that I wouldn’t shoot on France 2, but it was hard to refuse. »
Especially since Vortex offers the actor the opportunity to play a double role: the Ludovic of 1998 and that of 2025, with questions that resonate with the actor as to the possibility of changing his own life or not: “It’s everything I’ve been through that has made me who I am today. I went through not very pleasant moments like many people, but they are part of me and I probably wouldn’t have the same strengths if I hadn’t experienced all that. »
A technological challenge
The actor also identified with this character who lost the love of his life: “I was madly in love with the one I’m married to today. I knew she was the woman of my life but at one time we separated and I lived seventeen years without her. I was unhappy, borderline depressed. And yet she was not dead! So I was able quite easily to project myself into the skin of poor Ludo, who was forced to start a new life. » With influences ranging from Prohibited frequency to Butterfly Effect via Ghost, Vortex indeed brews many themes behind its most classic police intrigue.

The project was first born under the pen of novelist Franck Thilliez, before bouncing back with the arrival of young screenwriters Camille Couasse and Sarah Farkas, who introduced the idea of virtual reality rather than a simple computer. Hence a technological challenge for director Slimane-Baptiste Berhoun, who wanted to shoot the many sequences supposed to take place on a Breton beach in a room equipped with high-resolution screens: a technique similar to that used in particular on the series Star Wars – The Mandalorian but never used on such a scale in a French production.
“The sequences in the vortex are the emotional backbone of the series, it’s the love story that plays out there, explains the director. It’s a pity that there is still a somewhat negative preconception about the capacity in France to do fantasy and to produce high-quality special effects. »
Vortex, by Camille Couasse and Sarah Farkas, with Tomer Sisley, Camille Claris, Zineb Triki. 6 episodes of 52 minutes. Monday, 9:10 p.m. (already available on France.tv).
