Festivals - Colcoa 2018 : Focus on I love You 2
16 avril 2018
COLCOA French Film Festival is pleased to announce the 12 selections competing for the COLCOA 2018 Television Awards. This year’s Television section is comprised of television series and TV movies.
Hector’s life is nice and neat. He’s gay, a doctor, and has been living with Jérémie for five years now. They’re even planning to adopt a child. Then he runs into his first love, Louise… and he’s head-over-heels all over again. Suddenly his cup runneth over. He truly loves them both and refuses to give up either one. So what’s a boy to do? Your classic triangular romantic farce, with more than a dash of Marivaux thrown in, this original miniseries offers a refreshingly relaxed, delicate and, at times, very funny take on homosexuality, bisexuality, shared parenting, love and family. A Jules and Jim for the 21st century!
