A series of touching and just

Address mental illness on screen is always a tricky exercise, and yet, Mind, adapted from the show Finnish Sekasin, the succeeds of very fair way without falling into clichés. From the first minutes, the series immerses us in the story of Marvin (Constantine Vidal), and in their feeling of anger and misunderstanding. We live with it, its integration within the clinical pédopsychiatrique of Primroses and one is able to put it in its place, even if it is a little hard with the staff and patients. But despite his strong character and his style rebel, Marvin we touch by we are proving that it is not a big hard.

We feel that it is already taking affection to Simon the borderline (Louis Peres), Melody (Alicia Hava), who is bipolar, and Estelle (Lauréna Thellier). It is very different, but very similar at the time. As and episodes, and this small group, for whom one feels affection, is going to take us in his daily life. And something tells us we will worship him even more. The actors are really touching and one can only applaud their performance.

We appreciate also Mental for its lighter side, and its the small touches of humor that are good. The subject is sensitive, but the series is not something that is too heavy. The purpose is primarily not to reduce patients to their pathology and to prove that it is pointless to raise barriers between them and us. Let’s stop the judgments.

In short, we can’t wait to see the season 1 of the Mind in its entirety. The first two episodes are very promising and there is no doubt that the sequel will be just as top.
