Greek Salad, the new Spanish Apartment
Greek Salad is a new French TV show created by Cédric Klapish. You can watch it on Amazon Prime.
For the fans of the “trilogy” by Cédric Klapish, this new TV show is a stroke of luck. After the Spanish Apartment, Russian Dolls and Chinese Puzzle, it’s the turn of the children of the main characters of the trilogy to have their TV show.
Greek Salad takes place in Athens, where Tom joins his sister, Mia, because of a building received as an inheritance from their British grandfather.
Tom and Mia don’t have the same life and they don’t agree on the use of that building.
Tom usually lives in New York and he is starting a green start-up with his American girlfriend. Mia is in Athens because of an Erasmus program that she dropped almost immediately. She works for a non-for-profit organization which helps refugees in difficulty.
Mia hides her wealthy social background to live with her values and help the others in the best way she can.
Tom does not hide his intentions. He wants to sell the building as soon as possible to fundraise money for his start-up. But a fire at the headquarters of the non-for-profit organization will change Tom’s plans.
Greek Salad highlights the global life of generation Z. It mixes cultures, languages and it shows that we can get along even if we come from different countries. It’s a hymn to tolerance, inspired by the Spanish Apartment which was enhancing the benefits of the Erasmus program and the European values.
The trilogy was relevant for generation Y. Greek Salad is an opportunity to be immersed in the values of their youth, and maybe, to be nostalgic.
This new TV show is entertaining, international and shows that the mix of cultures is a strength.
Reminder about the trilogy:
