TV series show: Jessica Chastain stars in story about a marriage falling apart


Israeli director Hagai Levi's latest series "Scenes from a Marriage" drags viewers into uncomfortable territory, where main actors Jessica Chastain and Oscar Isaac play a married couple breaking up. The story of love, desire and relationships is an adaptation of Ingmar Bergman's 1973 hit of the same name. Our TV critic Yena Lee tells us why she enjoyed Levi's spin on the original.


Plus, the highly anticipated Spanish hit "Casa de Papel" or "Money Heist" is set to hit screens on September 3. The red overall-clad, Dali mask-wearing band of thieves promise more action and violence in the fifth and final season.

Finally, Yena tells us about the highlights of this year's Series Mania Festival. France's largest event dedicated to the small screen is free to attend, both in person and online. It runs until September 2 in the northern French city of Lille.
