For its season 4, DashFUN brings you the CANNESERIES festival. On the program of the day: season 2 of Validé screened in preview and an Argentinian series with a heroine who could have stolen the spotlight from Fallon in Dynasty.
1. Validated season 2 (opening series)
After an incredible first season and an audience award at Canneséries 2020, Validé is back at the opening festival for its second season. Expected at the turn, these new episodes of Franck Gastambide’s series have the difficult task of continuing to dig into the middle of French rap by coping with the absence of Hatik, who played Clément alias Apache, the main hero of the inaugural season.
To succeed the rapper, it is a rapper who enters the scene: Sara, played by a young artist and promising actress Laetitia Kerfa, who If we regret a few lengths in the first episodes, we are delighted to see a rapper in the foreground and to see a very good development of the characters already well established, such as Mastar (Moussa Mansaly) or William (Saïdou Camara), but also the arrival of refreshing and funny protagonists like the irresistible best friend of Sara camped by a brilliant Fatoumata Kaba.
The plot around the complicated rise of this rapper in a very masculine environment is interesting and quite realistic but we regret the big clogs used in the first episodes and the ease in which the authors fall for the too muscular and nervous sequences, which are distilled here and there so as not to lose the audience from the first hour.

As for the Festival Competition, a first Argentinian nugget was presented: Limbo … hasta que lo decida on the setbacks of a young bereaved heiress, who will juggle between her world filled with parties and glitter and the world of business that she apprehends with determination.
