In October, CANAL+ offers us a dive into the daily life of Florence Foresti for her Désordres series, as well as some recent big screen successes: En Corps by Cédric Klapisch, Uncharted, West Side Story and The Batman!
Disorders – Monday, October 3
Between the stage and the cinema, Florence Foresti also shines on the small screen, from October 3 with Désordres, a brand new CANAL+ Original Creation. And for the occasion, the actress goes behind the camera, a great first! Like Eric Judor in Platane or Blanche Gardin in The Best Version of Myself, the actress embodies her own role, with an essential balance between self-mockery and authenticity.
Through 8 episodes of 30 minutes, Florence Foresti takes us on a daily life as a famous and single quadra. Consumed by her anxieties, her anxiety materializes before our eyes in an unexpected form, and offers a surreal dimension to the story. A nugget series not to be missed!
The Staircase – Thursday, October 13
2001, North Carolina. Best-selling novelist Michael Peterson finds his wife lying in a pool of blood at the foot of their home’s stairs. Then launches an incredible and publicized judicial soap opera, which unleashes passions and tears the family apart.
This true story, which was the subject of the exciting documentary mini-series Soupçons in 2004, is now adapted in The Staircase, an 8-episode story to discover from October 13 on myCANAL. Led by Colin Firth and directed by Antonio Campos, the series paints an intimate portrait of this family broken by mourning, and offers a fascinating mise en abyme of a case over which mystery still hangs.
The Batman – Friday, October 14
If you are not one of the 3 million French people who have had the chance to see it in theaters, The Batman arrives on October 14 on myCANAL. Through a Gotham more baroque than ever, the batman tracks down a sadistic and merciless killer.

A real revival for the iconic bat who offers a darker and tortured version of Bruce Wayne in the guise of Robert Pattinson, all masterfully staged by Matt Reeves.
West Side Story – Tuesday, October 4
Visceral, magical, splendid: adjectives abound to evoke the West Side Story adaptation by Steven Spielberg, from October 4 on myCANAL.
