#5 Un gars, une fille

Funny and spicy, this mini-series lets you discover the daily life of a French couple between passion and quarrels. It is also the series that made the very famous French actor Jean Dujardin famous.

Synopsis : This series humorously tells the daily life of a couple: Jean (aka "Loulou") and Alexandra (aka "Chouchou", often called "Alex").
From the most banal situations (at home, in the living room, in the kitchen, on the phone, in bed, etc.) to the most exceptional (lost on a desert island or in the Vercors, in Hong Kong, in the Seychelles, a separation, a marriage, etc.), the life of Jean and Alexandra is far from being a long quiet river.

#9 Connasse

A mini-series of relentless comedy! Camille Cottin directs wonderfully hidden cameras with a lively, ironic and offbeat humour.

Synopsis : Filmed with a hidden camera, the series features an archetypal snobbish and unbearable Parisian woman, played by actress Camille Cottin. Filmed in the most diverse contexts in front of people who are unaware that she is an actress, she behaves in an arrogant and unseemly manner by multiplying incongruous remarks.

Number of season : 2 + one movie; Available on YouTube

My rating : ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️
