Capitani Netflix Review

Capitani is a 12 episode crime-thriller series that starts with an ambulance reaching at the crime scene that is at a construction site where a body has been unearthed and wrapped in a rug. Detective Luc Capitani is assigned to investigate the case but he doesn’t belong to the place so he needs to take help of local police(Elsa Ley as policewoman, Sophie Mousel) and villagers to know more details.

In the ending, we saw Detective Capitani(Luc Schiltz) concludes that the victim girl committed suicide because his team found drugs on her. But soon he uncovers a layer of secrets that turned the case upside down where all the team members are giving their opinions and telling a different story.

Actually, teenager (played by Jil Devresse) has a twin sister Tanya(also played by Jil) which is also missing. Later on police finds her but this twin sister refused to help police. If you go in the flashback, Capitani was also looking for a body wearing a pair binoculars that indicates he is on a personal mission but when you look at police woman Elsa Hey, she is very much interesting.

Probably, this is because Luc was not raised like his partner. That’s why he is always annoyed or angered on anything and everyone. This is the reason he is good at forcing people to tell the truth but difficult to sympathize. manscheid capitani location
