French web series Osmosis

“N’ayez plus peur d’aimer!” : “Don’t be afraid to love!”

No, I didn’t just wake up this morning and felt compelled to deliver this metaphysical message to you. “N’ayez pus peur d’aimer” is the motto of yet another great French web series, OSMOSIS, that I thought could be really helpful to you guys wanting to improve your level of French. I highly recommend this psychological thriller to advanced French learners in particular since there are no subtitles and the story is pretty intricate at times. Having said that, this 10 x 7min show, produced by Anne Santa Maria with Arte Creative, will catch your attention from the get go and is definitely worth checking out!

French web series OsmosisOsmosis is the name of a new app created in 2019 and based on innovating algorithms that guarantee you to find your soulmate. It sounds like it could save most of us a lot of problems right? The results are 100% successful so a lot of people have registered and wear a helmet that allows the application to access your whole brain, its memories, its intellectual and emotional functions. You see where the trouble starts… Yes, we’re quite a big step ahead of Facebook! This web series tackles the very modern theme of people’s relationship with machines, and it does so in a very original way: via our dearest need for love. When Thomas Melville, the creator of Osmosis, tells everybody that they can find their soulmate thanks to his application, he touches men and women’s most vulnerable aspect: matters of the heart. 

The series tells the story of Thomas Melville, his brother Paul and his girlfriend Elsa. The plot develop very fast and intensely so don’t be surprised if you catch yourself watching one episode after the other. You’re in for a ride… Enjoy!
