Night Three of Shows That You Should be Watching According to Me. Alas, this is the last of the series, so I will not be approaching Bresson’s Night Thread dominance.
Mixte, also known as Voltaire High on American Prime, was brought to my attention by a friend, who happened to create it. It’s set in France in 1963 as L’ecole Voltaire integrates 11 girls. I was expecting a boys vs girls show, but it’s an ensemble cast that focuses on both the students and the staff.
The clothing and style is fabulous as it’s a period piece and French. I had previously been warned that all French tv is bad, but Mixte’s cinematography caught my eye and I was surprised by the topics that were addressed. It is well worth the watch and at eight episodes, the season goes by quickly. Vive la France!
