In an interview with the program “Sept à Huit” on TF1 broadcast in October, Jean-Paul Rouve, who plays the patriarch Jeff Tuche in the family saga orchestrated by Olivier Baroux, rose up against criticism of the characters …
Less than a handful of days before the release in theaters of Tuche 4, on December 8, the TF1 channel very conveniently releases the Tuche 2 as an appetizer: the American dream, this Sunday evening. Episode in which, for the record, the family leaves to find the youngest in the United States.
Released in 2016, the second part of the saga orchestrated by Olivier Baroux had attracted more than 4.6 million spectators. A figure far above the first film, which attracted 1.53 million viewers. The Tuche 3 had meanwhile harvested 5.68 million admissions. A real and big popular success therefore; where part of the Press and other detractors of films do not hesitate to tackle the (mis) cinematographic adventures of “beaufs” characters.
A criticism and a word that just makes Jean-Paul Rouve, alias the patriarch Jeff Tuche, come off his hinges, which makes it a personal matter. Invited in the show “Sept à Huit” on TF1 last October, he explained that he has a very personal relationship with these characters, for whom he has “great tenderness”.
“When you criticize Les Tuche, I take it badly. But I don’t take it badly like a movie, I take it badly because I have the impression that one speaks badly about friends and I respect them ( …) It’s linked to my childhood “ he explained.
And to mention his father, a shipyard worker in Dunkirk, who found himself unemployed at 50, after the site closed. If he wasn’t like Jeff Tuche, he dated people with similar character traits, the comedian recounted. “Friends of my father or people of the family that I saw, that I knew yes … The accent, this music that I have in the head. My father was a worker, he did the three-eights a lot, I m ‘remember, which is super hard. I remember seeing my father leaving in the morning, doing difficult weeks. It’s still complicated lives. “
