It’s the end of the 21st century and society is in decline. The economic situation is a nightmare: only 20% of the population is actively employed while everybody else is jobless. The Actives live secluded within the city limits. On the fringes, in the Zone, live the Jobless. Two opposing territories in a dehumanized society. Separating them is a fortified wall. On one side, the Jobless—hungry, thirsty, in a state of total abandon. On the other, the Actives—forever terrorized by the idea of losing their jobs. Each camp expresses one facet of the same suffering: work, or the absence of it.
Trepalium Ep. 1
Somewhere in the future, decades of crisis have created a society where only 20% of the population is employed.
Pretty cool dystopian French scifi. The casting was lovely and way more interesting than the usual cookie cutter casting. Pretty emotionally involving. As for the stiff acting, I think it was part of the style the director was going for, so I didn't think bad of it. Very pleased to find this on Shudder ! Have to say that according to wikipedia, the director isn't planning a second season (sorry other commenters) but I'd love to see her 2018 series Ad Vitam on here too.
Jesus, is there anything on Shudder with English audio?
warning warning if I wanted to read a book I would have bought one...
Hooked on 1st episode. Everything is great, only thing I didnt like was that the work they did on their futuristic computers looked like a Nintendo Video game. But the twist ending of Season 1 was awesome. Come on Season 2!
