AND THE MOUNTAIN WILL BLOOM
NEW PERIOD SET FRENCH SERIES
While we are waiting for new period set French series Diane de Poitiers to arrive to the small screens, another one which I announced to you previously is ready for airing. AND THE MOUNTAIN WILL BLOOM (original title Et la montagne fleurira) is a six part series produced by Storia Television in a collaboration with French public broadcaster France Television where it will start airing from August 29th announcing the start of the new season and if I got it right it is also streaming on French streamer Salto where it is already available since August 9th for advance viewing. Eleonore Faucher has directed the series that she also wrote and that will star Guillaume Arnault, Claire Duburcq, Philippe Torreton, Constance Dollé, Hélène de Fougerolles, Ophelia Kolb, Julien Boisselier, Chloé Astor, Anne Brochet, Catherine Allégret, Rio Vega, Eva Danino, David Kammenos and Michel Jonasz.
THE STORY OF THE NEW SERIES
Based on Françoise Bourdon’s novel “Le Mas des Tilleuls” by Francoise Bourdon, the series is a six episode family saga set in 1837 in Provence and follows a man, Jean Baptiste (Guillaume Arnault), who was banned from this childhood homeby his father after being wrongfully accused of having abused his step mother, Seraphine (Hélène de Fougerolles). Jean Baptiste runs away to live with his aunt and eventually become a merchant of rare flowers and finds love with Lila. But his happiness is crushed when a revolt spreads across Provence, forcing him to reclaim rights over his family property and confronts wounds from his childhood.

Would have loved to see more botanical scenery in this one, but it looks watchable all the same.ReplyDelete
I wish we could see it, but I don't think we will.Delete
Et la Montagne Fleurira looks different, maybe exciting. I loved its trailer.ReplyDelete
Agreed, wish we could see it in our countries too!Delete
This looks delightful! I hope it's a happy ending where he gets to sell his rare flowers, marry the woman he fell in love with, and save his reputation from that accusation.ReplyDelete
And we see him nekkid in one of the scenes at least :)Delete
