WHAT DOES IT TALK ABOUT ?
In the distant future, as the human race lost its sense of sight, society had to find other ways to interact, to hunt, to build, and just to survive. This balance is upset the day twins are born with the ability to see. Baba Voss, the patriarch, must then protect his clan against a powerful queen who wants to destroy them, convinced that it is witchcraft.
A BRILLIANT SCENARIO
Uploaded when Apple TV + launched in November 2019, See instantly caught the eye. Halfway between fantasy and science fiction, this series by Steven Knight (Peaky Blinders) plunges us 600 years after our era, in a post-apocalyptic universe inhabited by a largely blind population.
In addition to his starting premise, See exposes blindness in a way rarely seen on the small and big screens, and turns this handicap into strength. While the arrival of sighted twins injects tension into the plot and contributes to its epic tone, the suspense could not be more present.
The viewer indeed becomes a real actor in the series, often being faced with scenes, situations and places that the characters cannot see. A delightfully addicting game!
A VISUAL EXTENT WHICH IS WORTH A LOOKING AT A GLANCE
Shot in a natural setting in Vancouver, See is punctuated by breathtakingly beautiful scenes that have nothing to envy on the big screen.
Cavalcades on the mountainside, excursions in lush forests, boat trips on lakes as far as the eye can see…: the visual spectacle is present in each episode.
Dressed in immersive sound, this visual richness highlights remarkable action scenes. We delight for example in front of a prodigious fight led by Baba Voss the chief of the Alkenny tribe, against slave sellers, or when he is confronted with a bear!
A JASON MOMOA WHO LEAVES “BABA”
Revealed in Game of Thrones, Jason Momoa marked a return to the primitive state to become Baba Voss, fearless, reckless, but also romantic and moving patriarch. A wider range of play than usual and surprising, visible throughout the 8 episodes of the first season of See.
But the actor born in Hawaii is not the only one to shine by his talent, since he gives the answer to the Dutch actress Sylvia Hoeks (Blade Runner 2049), to Alfre Woodard (Desperate Housewives), Hera Hilmar (Anna Karénine) ), Christian Camargo (Dexter), or even Franz Drameh (Edge of Tomorrow).
SEASON 2 IS COMING!
After more than a year of waiting, the 2nd season of See will finally be unveiled from August 27, 2021 on the Apple TV + platform. Subscribers will be able to dive into the exciting new adventures of Baba Voss with one episode uploaded every Friday.
Enough to give you plenty of time to (re) discover the first eight episodes of the series already renewed for a third season. See you on Apple TV +!
