La Garçonne (France 3): should we watch the series with Laura Smet broadcast tonight?

A choice will have to be made. This Thursday, November 24, while TF1 will offer the meeting between Brazil and Serbia as part of the Football World Cup, and M6 is betting on something new with the series The man of our lives (our opinion) France 3 bets for a rebroadcast: the series Boyish. Already broadcast in August 2021, this police and historical series in six episodes sees Laura Smet – who recently confided in his parents – realize one of his wildest fantasies: to interpret… a man!

Get ready to meet Man Ray, Joseph Kessel, or even Coco Chanel. In short, it’s bubbling, it talks about feminism, populism, corruption, debauchery, post-war trauma… and the reconstruction of this era fascinates. We almost believe it!

Laura Smet impresses in Boyish

And what about Laura Smet ? If it is sometimes difficult to understand how her crime colleagues do not unmask her, the actress, who thought a lot about her father during the filming, impresses us in this role for which she has prepared hard. “I worked on body language for a month with a dance teacher.

At her side, she can count on other talented actors, starting with Grégory Fitoussi (who has changed a lot since his debut) in the shoes of a determined journalist, Louise’s sidekick.
