With 4.7 million viewers for the second episode broadcast at the end of February 2021 (5.3 in the end, indicates France 3), the fiction Font is entitled to two new unreleased, the first of which is scheduled for this Saturday, February 5 (Exquisite Corpse). With always at the head of the gondola the duo of ill-matched cops made up of Louise Poquelin, an overwhelmed and petulant single mother (Clémentine Célarié), and Étienne de Beaumont, a slightly uptight literate aristo (now Xavier Robic).
Let’s admit that the program is not a model of dynamism and singularity, but an element that brings us out of our torpor.

Besides the fact that the library does exist in Lille, the editor in question is performed by Nastassja Kinski.
And then the memories come flooding back! There was deep emotion when we discovered her, a teenager, in the Tess by Roman Polanski in 1979 (and at the end of it a relationship with the filmmaker whose reading will evolve over the years…).

The 90s will be more complicated. They will prefigure oblivion. She just hears his voice when she denounces the abuse suffered in her youth by her father, the impetuous comedian Klaus Kinski. In March 2020, she was a member of the jury of the Valenciennes film festival, interrupted due to a certain pandemic. Here she is back, in the streets of Lille, with a status different from that to which she could have aspired, but with an aura that will undoubtedly move many viewers.
At 9:10 p.m., on France 3. Saturday, February 5: “Exquisite corpse”. Saturday February 12: “A wolf in the sheepfold”.
Two northern heroines, one girl!
Cypriane Gardin plays Manon, the older daughter of police captain Louise Poquelin (Clémentine Célarié) in Font, which mainly sets its plot in LiIle. It turns out that the young actress, trained in Tourcoing and Lille, also plays the daughter of another fictional heroine with very northern DNA.
