This evening in “Here everything begins”, Maxime (Clément Rémiens), who is about to leave the institute to become a chef in San Francisco, will give a moving farewell speech in which a nod to Auguste Armand and the very first episode.
After an eventful inter-school competition marked by the cheating of which Louis (Fabian Wolfrom) and Enzo (Azize Diabate) were guilty in Here it all begins, Maxime (Clément Rémiens) finally emerged victorious from this prestigious competition and accepted the proposal. of Michel Sarran, who offered him to be the chef of his new restaurant in San Francisco.
A twist that brings a way out for Clément Rémiens, who announced last November that he was going to leave the series, and who will thus make his last appearance tomorrow in the TF1 culinary soap opera.
Before pushing the doors of the Auguste Armand Institute for the last time, Maxime Delcourt will give a very nice farewell speech to his teachers and classmates, including Salomé (Aurélie Pons), Anaïs (Julie Sassoust), Hortense (Catherine Davydzenka), and Enzo, in the episode of Here it all begins which will be broadcast this evening on the front page.
“I learned a lot of things here. Thanks to you, my teachers, but also thanks to students who have become friends. That’s it, I’m leaving the institute. It was an honor to serve Auguste Armand, and I was proud to be part of this promo”, declares Maxime by way of farewell in this extremely moving speech that we can already discover in an extract revealed in advance by TF1.
“I came here a year ago, out of love and passion for cooking. When I arrived, I did not expect such a requirement, but I liked it. I liked the responsibility that you entrusted me with the efforts we made together. And quite simply, I liked sharing these moments with you”.
But this speech is also an opportunity for the screenwriters of Here it all begins to give a nice nod to the very first episode of the series, broadcast on November 2, 2020 on TF1, and to Auguste Armand, the illustrious deceased chef more than a year ago, which was played by Francis Huster on screen.
“I’m not sure one day to rediscover the magic of Auguste Armand”, continues Maxime before placing this famous reference to the former director of the school. “But anyway what matters is not what you do in life, it’s what you do with your life. I think it’s time for me to take flight. We will have lived good times. I take them with me. I will miss you”.
The phrase “What matters is not what you do in life, it’s what you do with your life” is indeed pronounced by Auguste Armand in the first episode of Here it all begins, when the father of Rose (Vanessa Demouy) and Clotilde (Elsa Lunghini) himself makes a speech in the amphitheater of the institute to welcome the students who are about to take the school entrance exam. We can also hear it in the trailer below, released at the launch of the series.
With this wink, which does not fail to move Rose, Maxime thus comes full circle, not forgetting the one who was in a way his first mentor, before Teyssier (Benjamin Baroche). And the day he first set foot in this institute that was to change his life.
A nice way for the authors of the soap opera to say goodbye to Maxime before writing a new chapter of Here it all begins, without Clément Rémiens.
