Varushka Mungra: “It’s always interesting to watch a Rowan Atkinson film”
Varushka Mungra, from Floréal, watched the series “Man vs. Bee”, which featured Rowan Atkinson, better known as “Mr Bean”. And who says Rowan Atkinson says humor and a lot of fun. “It was enough to convince me to see this series. Rowan Atkinson on the bill was enough. For the fans, it’s an event when he releases a film. »
Admittedly, says the young woman of 20 years, the series is not comparable to the extent of the commercial success of “Mr Bean”. It remains interesting and can be seen with the family on Sundays. Moreover, “Man v Bee” is in the Top 10 series in Mauritius.
“It’s a satire on the exaggeration of wealthy people. The actor brilliantly plays the role of a kind and loving man who wants to get rid of a bee while guarding the luxurious mansion of an arrogant couple. It’s always interesting to watch a Rowan Atkinson movie. In addition, laughter is guaranteed. »
Kurtish Pirthee: “Stranger Things is more than a series, it’s an experience in its own right”

As an audience, you can find yourself in some of them. They are so attached. The character development is amazing. I can’t stop watching the series. »
Le Curépipien notes the work done on writing, cinematography and attention to detail. “This series kept me spellbound until the end! The scenes are thrilling. Nothing is left to chance. The puzzles are all related to previous seasons and some hint at the development of the series in the next season,” he says.
According to Kurtish Pirthee, this series is for those who love comedy, monsters, 80s references, thrills and good music from that era. “I didn’t know all that time, ‘Stranger Things’ made me want to live, to play ‘Dungeons and Dragons’ and listen to Kate Bush over and over. It’s more than a series, it’s an experience in its own right. »

Thatiana was indeed pleasantly surprised and deeply touched. She says that this film gave her another perspective on life and the vocation of a soldier.
“This man was the very example of an honorable man, a true soldier, a son of the soil and of the fatherland.
