Twice upon a time, Il Était Une Seconde Fois/ Netflix

Like your thrillers with a smidgen of romance and a dollop of time travel? Then look no further. This moody new Netfix series, called Twice Upon a Time in English, follows Vincent, who, devastated by his break-up with his girlfriend Louise, throws himself into a life of sleazy debauchery in a valiant but misguided attempt to shake off his heartache.

One day, he receives a mysterious parcel containing a box which allows him to travel into the past. Without further ado, our hero is transported back to a time where he and Louise are still together, giving him another chance at their relationship. The question is, can he get it right a second time around? Smouldering, slow-burning and slightly off-beat, that’s your weekend binge-watch sorted.

Creator: Guillaume Nicloux
Starring: Gaspard Ulliel, Freya Mavor
