GEORGE AND FANCHETTE (2010, Jean-Daniel Verhaeghe, A+10)

GEORGE AND FANCHETTE (2010, Jean-Daniel Verhaeghe, A+10)

I like this mini-series very much. It is about George Sand (Ariane Ascaride), the same woman who is also the lover of Alfred de Musset (Benoît Magimel) in the film THE CHILDREN OF THE CENTURY (1999, Diane Kurys, A-/B+), and the lover of Chopin (Hugh Grant) in IMPROMPTU (1991, James Lapine, A). But in GEORGE AND FANCHETTE, George Sand is the lover of a friend of her son (เป็นแฟนกับเพื่อนของลูกชาย). Her lover is as young as her own son. This mini-series really satisfies the secret desire of many housewives, I guess. Many mothers who allow her son to bring his friends home might harbor a desire like George Sand. Hahaha. Just kidding.
