On January 26, Edouard Baer will bring together a nice cast in “Adieu Paris”, his new production, from Benoît Poelvoorde to François Damiens, including Léa Drucker. The problem is, no one wants to star in their movie trailer.
Bringing together Benoît Poelvoorde, Léa Drucker, François Damiens, Pierre Arditi, Gérard Depardieu, Isabelle Nanty or even Daniel Prévost in the same feature film, is that Edouard Baer succeeded with Adieu Paris, his fourth production. Failure to make them play in his trailer, wiping refusal after refusal, is the concern that he must now resolve.
After a festive teaser shot (improvised?) At the start of the shootings, the actor and director continues to unveil his film without showing the slightest image. He thus places himself at the crossroads of this sequence of Les Clefs de bagnole in which all French cinema, including Edouard Baer himself, refuses to play for Laurent Baffie. And the conceptual and offbeat trailers of Alain Resnais’ feature films, like those of Herbes folles, carried by the author of Adieu Paris.
Expected on January 26 in our theaters, the film will focus on the traditional meeting of eight great figures of Parisian culture, on the intruders they welcome within their group and on the questions of time passing, of friendship.
With a great help of actors who, failing to want to play in the trailer, will be present on the screen. And in particular the late Jean-François Stévenin, in one of his last roles.
