Critic Reviews for The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair Miniseries

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (3)

The horridly clunky script for this American miniseries should have been considered for a long spell in the bottom drawer followed by quick incineration in the backyard.

Annaud directs every episode, and the cinematic textures are obvious.

Sep 11, 2018 | Full Review…

[This series] has a leisurely appeal, a bit like a slick early-1990s potboiler...and a polished edge of ambiguity.

Audience Reviews for The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair: Miniseries

    Pure guilty pleasure - because of the good old whodunnit-syndrome. But, let's be honest: writing and directing are so shamefully lame. The director once was a movie genius (the name of the rose) but now it looks to me like he wanted to spend a nice summer in Maine, getting paid.
  • Mar 21, 2019
    Cheesy dialogues and poor screenplay made a potential good crime a cobbler representation of jerky characters.

    Saw this when it aired in England and it was a great story full of twists and turns. The cast was terrific.

    Terrible acting & screenwriting painfully mashed together, but like a bad car wreck, it’s hard to look away. It’s compelling in its awkwardness. Watch, but only if you’ve got a bottle of wine & time to kill.

    Amazing & brilliant! Had me on the edge of my seat each episode! Highly recommended it.

    While at times dragged out, leaves you on the edge wanting more

    Actually surprisingly good.

    Full of seasoned talent. I’d say this about it so far... it’s not exactly a ‘fresh’ idea as such. The book in all its intensity has many a twist and yet it always appears that’s never the easiest task when adapting to the small screen... so much time seems to be wasted with multiple camera angles and fatigued dialogue. If it’s not funny... don’t try to make it funny. Just get to business. Still.... mr Dempsey is always a fine tuned instrument of talent to master his stage and it seems worth sticking with if you like a little light mystery. I’d say it’s more for fans of the book. Otherwise try the sinner.
