something new in French serial dramaturgy
The director says she combines the effectiveness of an "American-style" story with "the tragic Russian". Imagine that this tension is due to our Western Mediterranean origins, France as a projection of Algeria, just as America is from the West. As soon as the universal has a country (a geography), in the name of each and every one of us, the president carries the tension between the traumatic past, the somatic present in its multiple current violence and the cathartic hope. The President embodies (a body) the hope (projection) that his election (will) then offers (at the time) the mandate for a resolution between the two twin forces (relationships) that are freedom and determinism. And French universality, like American universality when they know how to be put into action and narrated, is important for the future of this planet. When it is done as it is in this television series, the tragic spectacle pushes judgments to be expressed in our soul, which then accepts each of the components of a society as its own activity. State of consciousness, states of Awareness. Meet in a scripted and serialized present, History as all the times, and the stories that come now. In this dramaturgy represented here, the show does not show a society, a planet still at the stage of love. Nor is it specifically represented suffering or some good reasons to be offended, to denounce, to criticize, to judge, to explain, the usual springs of often boring French-style fiction. No, here it is the sharing of an uncompromising meditation to encourage our sharpened faculties through the mediation of movement images. That an actor in adversity leads this ancestor from the south to cross the water for a land; to finally find himself in the fire of a renewed consciousness in the universal air; it is an autumn festival of balance and moderation. And that it is in the midst of the tumults of an era, it is well done! As for what it is about, current events are reported in the news. But a director's art will show you something else. Because to break the automatism of thinking, you need the shock, the coma, the deaths of the old dead-end roads for hope to become love. Thank you for your attention and good viewing.
