Twenty years after “The Spanish Inn”, Xavier and Wendy are still there and we can follow their children Tom and Mia in “Greek Salad”, the sequel to the saga created by Cédric Klapisch. Soon available on Amazon Prime Video, we can already crush a little tear of nostalgia with a first image of the cast.
The stars of the Spanish Inn are back
It is with undisguised pleasure that we will soon be able to see on Prime Video the continuation of the saga opened in 2002 by Cédric Klapisch with The Spanish inn. After Russian dolls in 2005 and Chinese puzzle in 2013, it is with the series Greek salad that we will find Xavier (Romain Duris) and Wendy (Kelly Reilly), as well as William and Isabelle (Cécile de France). This time, we will focus more particularly on their children Tom (Aliocha Schneider) and Mia (Megan Northam).
It is not yet known when exactly the series will be available on the streaming platform, but it will enjoy worldwide distribution. Ideal for the extension of a story that has already taken its audience to Paris, Barcelona, London, and New York.
Direction Athens for a new roommate
It’s in Greece and Athens that, as its title indicates, the main action of Greek salad takes place. The synopsis of the series thus lays the foundations for a new family plot that will hold its share of surprises. When their grandfather died, Tom and Mia inherit a building in Athens. He is 25 years old and has done brilliant studies, she is 19 years old and is in rebellion. Despite historically conflicting relationships, Tom and Mia will have to learn to live together, at the same time as they host people from all over Europe.
If we expect to laugh and be moved, it is also suggested that the carelessness that characterized Xavier’s trip to Barcelona will give way to a more nuanced view of today’s European youth. twenty years later The Spanish inn, the Erasmus program no longer exists and the world has changed, and the series should bear witness to this evolution. It is also interesting to return to the idea of this first film, that of an exploration of young people at the gates of adulthood, rather than pursuing a story centered around Xavier.
