I watched two French drama series recently, both starring the same three actresses: Audrey Fleurot, Camille Lou and Julie de Bona. Both loosely based on a true event and both HerStory. The woman’s side of historic events.

Created by Célile Lorne

In 1914, German troops advance, men leave for the front lines, and four women grapple with the devastating consequences of war at home in France.

creator: Catherine Ramberg

Amid a devastating fire in 1897 Paris, three women see their destinies turned upside down by forbidden love, identity theft, betrayal and emancipation.

Both were mini series of eight episodes each, with three brilliant actresses. Even managed to get past the dubbing.
