IN THERAPY. The new series from directors Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache features actor Frédéric Pierrot in the lead role. In which films has he been seen before?
[Mis à jour le 4 février 2021 à 20h50] Through several sessions of psychoanalysis, Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache dissect the collective trauma of the attacks of November 13, 2015. Broadcast on Arte, their latest series, En Therapy, features five patients (played by Mélanie Thierry, Reda Kateb, Pio Marmaï, Clémence Poesy and Céleste Brunnquell) during their sessions with their psychoanalyst. The latter is played by actor Frédéric Pierrot, whose face is sure to be familiar to moviegoers.
Before joining the cast of En Therapy, Frédéric Pierrot began his film career in 1989 in La vie et rien autres by Bertrand Tavernier, with whom he will continue to collaborate on several feature films. This demanding actor has worked with renowned filmmakers of auteur cinema, such as Ken Loach (Land and Freedom), Jean-Luc Godard (For Ever Mozart) or Bertrand Blier (Mon homme). More recently, we have seen him in several prominent roles, such as in Her name was Sarah, Long since I love you, Young and pretty or Place publique. 2011 will definitely be his year since he stands out in front of the cameras of Valérie Donzelli (War is declared) and that of Maïwenn (Polisse). His role in this last film earned him a nomination for the César.
Synopsis – In therapy is a French series adapted from Betipul, an Israeli series. We follow a psychoanalyst and five of his patients, deeply marked by the Paris attacks which took place in November 2015, during each of their sessions.
