Mouloud Achour goes behind the camera for his first feature film, “Les Méchants” and brings with him an exceptional cast. The first trailer has arrived.
The villains : Mouloud Achour becomes director
We know Mouloud Achour on television in the Canal + galaxy and for several years as a figurehead of Clique. He decided to take on a new challenge by directing his first feature film, The villains. Accompanied by Dominique Baumard as the director, he surrounded himself with people he knows and for whom he has affection. This is how was formed a crazy distribution, a cross between actors and personalities from the world of humor or urban culture. We will thus see Djimo, Roman Frayssinet, Ludivine Sagnier, Anthony Bajon, Kyan Khojandi, Mathieu Kassovitz, Alban Ivanov, Samy Naceri, Bun Hay Mean, Fadily Camara, Marwa Loud, Hakim Jemili or even Heuss L’Enfoiré (who signed a song titled The villains in 2019), to mention. Other luxury guests will also pass a head in small roles.
What is it about ?
The villains lingers on two guys, Patrick and Sebastian (do you have it?) on what is the worst day of their lives. They will be involved together in an affair which will take a completely disproportionate turn with the participation of a TV host eager to make the buzz. They will thus become the country’s most wanted villains, under the pressure of a France which has its eyes riveted on social networks and news channels. A fashionable comedy, which incorporates everything that makes the particularity of our time (the buzz on social networks, the race for information) and which proves, through its cast, a desire to advocate diversity. Mouloud Achour has always wanted to highlight people of various origins and minorities in his work.
The trailer for The villains just came out. We feel that the casting will be the strong point of this comedy. It has also landed the Festival de l’Alpe d’Huez 2021 label and will soon arrive in our theaters since the release is scheduled for September 8.
