At the end of the last three episodes of the series created by Valérie Donzelli this evening on Arte, will we see a sequel to this sweet poetic fable on motherhood worn by Miou-Miou, Virginie Ledoyen and Clotilde Hesme?
Warning, this article contains spoilers!
The first series by Valérie Donzelli, Nona et ses filles tells the story of Nona, a feminist and independent woman who raised her three daughters on her own, and finds herself pregnant at the age of 70. Worn by Miou-Miou, Virginie Ledoyen, Valerie Donzelli, Michel Vuillermoz and Antoine Reinartz, will the series whose broadcast ends tonight on Arte be entitled to a sequel?
At the end of the last three episodes broadcast this evening on Arte, it is difficult to imagine a direct continuity to the series, since at the end of a laborious childbirth, Nona (Miou-Miou), very weak and in a coma , will not recover from this ordeal, leaving her three orphan daughters with Sam, her newborn baby, on her arms.
George, Gaby and Manu will then stick together and stand together, in order to honor the memory of their mother. They will then set up a system of alternating custody with André, the father of the child.
As George discovers that he is more and more attached to Sam and decides to take a year off to take care of him, Manu, still invested in the family planning of the Goutte d’Or where his mother worked, continues to be involved. in neighborhood life by helping women.
Gaby, for her part, will reconnect with her now adult daughter, whom she had abandoned at birth when she was young, and marry Paou, her mother’s midwife with whom she fell in love.
All three then bid farewell to the apartment on rue Poulet in which their mother has spent all her life, ready to turn the page and take on their new responsibilities, each having become a little more adult in the process.
Little chance therefore to see Valerie Donzelli and her co-screenwriter Clémence Madeleine-Perdrillat give a follow-up to this touching and poetic story about motherhood and the power of sorority as this bittersweet ending seems perfectly complete, with a Friends-like conclusion when the triplets close the door of their mother’s apartment.
Among their next projects, Clémence Madeleine-Perdrillat has just completed her participation in the writing of season 2 of En Therapy for Arte, while Valérie Donzelli will appear in the cast of Azuro, the next film by Matthieu Rozé whose theatrical release is scheduled for March 16, 2022.
