Simone is a dramatic comedy where characters evolve in a realistic world. They are, however, faced with overwhelming situations where their values and knowledge are of no use. Cracks start appearing in the facade, and herein lies the humour. Indeed, the dichotomy between what the characters experience and what they project is an infinite source of dark humour, sarcasm and irony. The series demystifies, explains and justifies the sometimes quirky behaviour of women, because we don’t all aspire to the house-marriage baby combo, because beneath our crazy outbursts there are often good reasons, but mostly because we are not all that complicated. To put it simply, we are lonely women looking for love. As Simone de Beauvoir once said: «One is not born, but rather becomes, a woman.»
