Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain are a couple in turmoil in the miniseries “Scenes from a Marriage”, scheduled for mid-September on HBO. Check out the trailer that promises a mix between deep thoughts on the couple and emotion.
An American adaptation of a series by Ingmar Bergman
Scenes from a Marriage is the adaptation for HBO of the eponymous mini-series created by the giant Ingmar Bergman in the 70s. The Swede evoked the life of a couple over several years, with obstacles, deep questions and a love nonetheless indestructible. More than the series, you may be familiar with feature film editing. A different format, which condenses all the elements but preserves the sap of the project.
September 12 is going to be launched an American replay on HBO. Titled in the same way as the original, it will be based on a luxury duo formed by Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain. On paper, we sign with our eyes closed to see these two fight back. These are actors that we love and who, we are sure, will be impeccable.
The first will play Johan, a philosophy teacher, while the second will be Marianne, an executive in a modern company. Their marriage began a good decade ago and they had two daughters together. They have everything to live happily, a well-built family unit and stable situations. Which won’t stop them from starting to question their relationship. In the official description of the show, HBO mentions a story around “of love, hate, desire, monogamy, marriage and divorce“, the whole”through the prism of a contemporary American couple.“
Scenes from a Marriage, between reflection and emotion
A new trailer has just been unveiled by the network and the preview shows exactly what we expected. To know a series that focuses on the characters. With a delicate staging that is entirely at their service and a great place given to the beaches dialogued. Without the slightest hint of surprise, the two stars look excellent. We feel that we risk shedding a few tears during the five episodes!
Scenes from a Marriage will be available in France on OCS, in the wake of the broadcast in the United States.
