Dany Boon’s new comedy, “8 Rue de l’Humanité”, inspired by confinement, will be available on October 20 on Netflix. The film is revealed with a first crazy trailer.
Dany Boon at Netflix
When he’s behind the camera, Dany boon still a hit at the French box office. Except for his first film, The House of happiness (over a million admissions in France), his films have consistently exceeded 4 million admissions. And we obviously remember that more than 20 million spectators went to see Welcome to the Ch’tis in 2008. But with 8 Rue de l’Humanité, his seventh achievement, three years later The Ch’tite Family, success cannot be achieved in theaters. The film is indeed scheduled on Netflix. The platform made a big blow by attracting Dany Boon for this news comedy inspired by the coronavirus pandemic and containment.
A comedy about confinement
As can be seen in the trailer unveiled by Netflix (in an article), 8 Rue de l’Humanité takes place in the middle of a confinement period in a Parisian building. We first find Dany Boon alongside Laurence Arné (already present in The Ch’tite Family and co-writer of this new film). They play in the film a couple who lives with their daughter, necessarily worried because of the Covid-19. And it is not her father who will reassure her. Dany Boon offers himself a role in the line of Supercondriac with delirious lines like the “it’s the Covid“dropped in front of the front door.
Other families in the building will cross paths and get to know each other. Confinement requires, neighbors are more easily aware of the presence of each other, for better or for worse. As with the singer Agathe, interpreted by Alison wheeler. Also present in the cast are François Damiens, Yvan Attal, Tom Leeb and Liliane Rovère. Enough to promise an offbeat comedy like Dany Boon has the secret.
8 Rue de l’Humanité will be to discover on Netflix October 20.
