But the new project absorbs her so much that the psychological state of the girl begins to worsen every day. Will she be able to return to reality?..
“Irma Vep ss 2”: release date, announcement
Currently, information has not been confirmed that the continuation of the TV series “Irma Vep” will be released. However, season 1 showed very high ratings, which theoretically could influence the producers’ decision to take on season 2. We continue to follow the news.
For several years, Mira has been successfully building a relationship with her assistant Laurie. But at one point she went to the director of the film in which Mira was filmed. Not understanding the reasons for the breakup, the main character tries to find a common language with her beloved, but everything turns out to be not so simple. Laurie does not hide her dismissive attitude and urges her ex-girlfriend.
Mira, in turn, wants to improve and return to the past. She used to cheat on Laurie and only after the breakup found out that the girl knows about her adventures. Laurie is not ready to leave the current boyfriend and actively demonstrates the financial benefits that he provides her. Realizing that there is no chance, Mira does not want to humiliate herself for a long time, and plunges headlong into the project “Les Vampires”, which introduces her to the impulsive director René.
He is always dissatisfied, easily loses his temper and already has a reputation as an unreliable employee behind his back. Therefore, in the middle of filming “Les Vampires” sponsors refuse to pay for the project. René is furious, because the reason for this was the truth that he told the psychiatrist – he currently has to take a sedative. The producers found out about this and wanted to curtail the filming that had already begun.
For Mira, the main role in the French film is a kind of step back, since her previous works were more ambitious. But the girl firmly decided to show herself in the image of Irma Vep, the muse for vampires. Focusing on her work, she is increasingly immersed in the world of her heroine, and the eccentric René demands a huge return from her.
Finally, the lives of Mira and Irma are mixed up, and for a real girl, the boundaries begin to blur. She gets so used to the role that she is often in a black velvet suit, imagining herself to be the most dangerous killer. What will such dedication lead to? Will Laurie come back and will Mira want her back again? There will be no answers until Mira’s heart finds peace…
