An Isabelle Nanty can hide another! In this new opus of “Tuche”, we discover that Cathy has a twin sister who looks like her like two drops of water. How did the actress achieve this performance? Response elements.
Surprise in this 4th part of Tuche! We discover that Cathy Tuche (Isabelle Nanty) has a twin sister, Maguy Marteau, married to the worst enemy of Jeff Tuche (Jean-Paul Rouve), Jean-Yves Marteau (Michel Blanc).
To split up and be able to play with its twin sister, the Tuche team had to find a subterfuge, commonly used in cinema, such as The Visitors for example.
We asked the director of the film, Olivier Baroux, and Jean-Paul Rouve, to explain to us how this feat had been possible.
Above all, the interpreter underlined the work done by his playing partner. “For Isabelle Nanty, it’s a hell of a job“, he calls tit for tat.”Imagine, we do the scene and she does the two characters. She will therefore turn into Cathy with a body liner who must play like her. She gives him the answer. Cut. Isabelle goes back to make-up, change, make-up, hairstyle. It takes a good hour.“
“And she will play with herself after“, adds Olivier Baroux.”Sometimes we even send back the soundtrack, so she can hear herself and she has to say the sentences in the holes“, continues Jean-Paul Rouve.
“She’s playing with herself to her, and she’s playing with someone else in front of her, her understudy. All this is if it is fixed. But if there is a camera movement, for example, it is even more complicated. We do a first pass with her, with all of us. Everything is fine. And we all go away, that’s terrible for her, and they put spikes with traveling motion balls like tennis balls. And there she looks at the tennis balls. It’s super hard“, adds the tandem.
“Technically, it’s pretty straightforward anyway. But it’s for actresses, actors. You really have to be focused, know your job. If you are new to the business, you don’t even have to try“, concludes Olivier Baroux.
The pitch of Tuche 4: After having resigned from his post as President of the Republic, Jeff and his family are happy to be back in their village of Bouzolles. As the end of the year holidays approach, Cathy asks for a unique gift: to reconnect with her sister Maguy, and her husband Jean-Yves with whom Jeff has been angry for 10 years.
The reconciliation could have gone smoothly, except that during a lunch, Jeff and Jean-Yves, will once again find a subject of contention: CHRISTMAS. This family quarrel which should never have left Bouzolles will turn into a showdown between Jeff and a giant of Internet distribution.
The film is currently in theaters.
