Those who are nostalgic for soap-opera will be served Monday, October 4 on Canal +. Alex Lutz arrives alongside Audrey Lamy, Leïla Bekhti, François Civil, Marion Cotillard, and Gaspard Ulliel in “La Vengeance au triple gallop” a hilarious parody which promises a total immersion in the 80s.
Vengeance at the triple gallop : a retro parody
The king of disguise and parody has struck again! Alex Lutz will be back on Canal + in his new project entitled Vengeance at the triple gallop. This 90-minute parody TV movie will plunge us with nostalgia into the universe of soap opera from the 80s, such as Santa barbara, Days and lives or Dallas. Wigs, brushings, shoulder pads, add to that, deceptions, money, loves, betrayals, everything is there!
The pitch is as follows: After the death of his father, Stephanie harper, a rich heiress, finds herself at the head of an empire she never dreamed of. A few years later, she married Craig Danners, three weeks after their “love at first sight”. This man is a star thanks to brisk walking, sport of which he is the reference in the whole world. However, he is not the dreamed husband … Craig talks an affair with Crystal, Stéphanie’s best friend. The couple of lovers conceives for Stéphanie a Machiavellian plan to get rid of her and recover her fortune.
A cast of madness
In original looks and improbable we will find, Audrey Lamy who will play Stéphanie Harper, but also Leïla Bekhti, Guillaume Gallienne, Gaspard Ulliel, Karin Viard, Marion Cotillard, François Civil, Ingrid Chauvin, or even Bruno Sanchez. Completely fan of this kind of program when he was a child, Alex Lutz covered absolutely all the codes of soaps of the time : from the artificially smoothed image, to the overlay of the actors, through convoluted plots and far-fetched dialogues.
A childhood dream finally realized for the actors who funnily amused on the set of Vengeance at the triple gallop and who took pleasure in dressing up, as Alex Lutz and Audrey Lamy explained on the set of C to you. Every morning the actors discovered themselves in their new outfits. We will have the chance to discover François Civil with oily hair glasses, a big belly and a tooth less or even Gaspard Ulliel with a mullet cut, and Leila Bekhti with different wigs at each session, just for that, it’s worth a look.
