Blanche Gardin plays her own role in “The Best Version of Myself”, an introspective comedy that takes the form of a fictional documentary. We tell you everything you need to know about this Canal + stamped series launched on December 6.
Blanche Gardin takes the stage in The best version of myself
Having become a leading comedian in the French landscape, Blanche Gardin has increased her number of appearances at the cinema in parallel with her one-woman shows. She is identified as someone who dares, who hits where it hurts with the help of sour and irreverent humor. The small screen being one of her playgrounds, she returns to Canal + with the series The best version of myself. A project that is close to his heart and on which she is both co-writer, director and lead actress.
On this occasion, she plays her own role in a mock documentary at the The Office. Tired of enduring ulcers that ruin his life, the comedian makes a strong decision: to withdraw from the comic world for his own well-being. How will she experience this personal and professional turning point? This is what we will discover in The best version of myself, by exploring his daily life from all angles.
The series will therefore attempt reduce the border between reality and fiction as much as possible, helped by a formal approach inspired by the documentary. Blanche Gardin has never had a problem giving herself up, even on her most questionable sides, and we can imagine her doing its own auscultation in addition to that of an era. How far will it go? We do not know it yet, but it goes without saying that it will be far.
To top it off, the principal concerned refused to participate in the interview game, believing that the program was sufficient on its own and was pretty self-explanatory. An indentation that will surely participate in making the decryption more complex for viewers. The idea is not to displease us and we can already realize the perilous exercise in which it launches thanks to the trailer (in an article). The series takes up 9 episodes of less than 30 minutes (the ideal format for such a concept) and will be to follow on Canal + every Monday, from December 6.
