“The House of Fools; the reign”: the sorority is a house

“House of Fools; Reigns”: Sisterhood is a House

Alizée (Juliette Gariepy) and Sahara (Sarah Cantin) play two friends who met in a foster home in “La maison des folies”.

After a first season that revealed protagonists as moving as they are endearing, La maison des fous returns for a second season. Tough, touching, funny and glaringly true, the eight new episodes make us brilliantly alternate between laughter and tears.

This series, now produced by Trio Orange (to whom we owe, in particular, the hits Do you hear me? and Time for raspberries), tells the story of five young girls from the DPJ in search of freedom and balance.

In this sequel La maison des folies; the reign, Sahara (Sarah Cantin), Alizée (Juliette Gariépy), Dolores (Maxim Iacobaccio), Erika (Yulia Shupenia) and Fauve (Anne-Florence Lavigne) find themselves separated from their new foster mother (Claire Jacques). After a report against the one who is nicknamed “aunt”, the teenagers find themselves once again in the youth protection system, without a home.

Among the new characters, we find Vanessa (Claudia Bouvette ) and Mathieu Leclerc (Mathieu Baron). Addressing issues such as sexism and racism, the story is glaringly true, but also topical, as the recent reform of the Youth Protection Act supposed to “prioritize the ;child” is still criticized.
