“Technology in ‘Osmosis’ doesn’t create a dystopia or a utopia in itself. It’s just a tool, and different people project different dreams and fears onto it, for better and worse” and that this “level of nuance and awareness makes ‘Osmosis’ start out thoughtful and refreshing.”
“Osmosis” is a French science fiction web television series created by Audrey Fouché. The series stars Hugo Becker, Agathe Bonitzer, Stéphane Pitti, Gaël Kamilindi, Suzanne Rault-Balet, Luna Silva, Manoel Dupont and Yuming Hey.
The first season, consisting of eight episodes, was released on March 29, 2019, on Netflix.
On March 24, 2019, the series held its official premiere with the screening of the first two episodes at the Series Mania International Festival in Lille, France.
Set in near-future Paris, the science-fiction drama sees a new dating app called “Osmosis” developed that can decode true love, digging deep into its users’ brain data to find a perfect match with 100% accuracy. But is there a price to pay when letting an algorithm decide whom you will love, using technology that can access the innermost recesses of your mind and your best-kept secrets.
‘Osmosis’ is a really thrilling SF trip, one asking some big questions around love and relationships while delivering a well written story full of twists and turns along the way, thought-provoking and edges on the air of irony. It relies on the audience’s knowledge of the challenging world of dating and how cynical the human race is becoming with their choice of an “other half”.
