Le Bazar de la Charité: the new French series everyone is talking about

Bazar De La Charite

It is the French event series produced by TF1 in partnership with Netflix which marks the big comeback of costume fiction on the screens with Audrey Fleurot , Julie de Bona , Gilbert Melki , Stéphane Guillon , Josiane Balasko and Florence Pernel . A colorful cast at the heart of a drama that marked Paris at the dawn of the 20th century. Decryption.

A historical saga in the midst of the Belle Époque

Nothing could be more effective than drawing inspiration from real events to make a period film. In 1897, in Paris, a charity sale very popular with high society turned into a tragedy. Director Alexandre Laurent introduces the series to the heart of a fire at the Bazar de la Charité rue Jean Goujon, in the 8th district.

It all started with a half-hour nightmare in a blaze where 125 people were to die, including 120 women, aristocrats and big bourgeois women. In question: the hallucinatory behavior of the men on the spot who fled and trampled on the fairer sex. The case causes a huge scandal. Three women see their lives turned upside down , including Adrienne de Lenverpré (played by Audrey Fleurot), who will pass herself off as dead to try to escape the violence of her husband camped by Gilbert Melki.

A soap opera in the tradition of Titanic

For this super-production , TF1 spared no expense with a budget of 17 million euros for 8 spectacular episodes, demented costume work and magnificent reconstructions of the mansions of high Parisian society in the middle of the Third Republic.

Did you love Le Comte de Montecristo ? You will be caught up in this saga which is terribly reminiscent of Titanic , starting with its narrative framework. Everything is there: the destiny of strong women, passionate love, a political thriller and a police investigation ... All layers of society are represented with the aristocracy, the bourgeoisie and servants such as firefighters, politicians and journalists.

Attack , feminicide , freedom of the press , independence of the judiciary : all the good contemporary tricks in a scenario inspired by real events that Zola could have turned into a bestseller. In short: a devilishly cool and efficient series to binge-watcher with joy.

Le Bazar de la Charité on TF1 from 11/18 at 9 p.m. and in replay of episodes 1 and 2
