Let’s go for a bastard Christmas in the company of the craziest family in France: Les Tuche! On the occasion of the release of the 4th episode, DashFUN met Jean-Paul Rouve alias Jeff Tuche, and the director Olivier Baroux.
After a one-year postponement due to the health crisis, Les Tuche 4 is finally coming to the cinema! After resigning from his post as President of the Republic, Jeff Tuche 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.
On the occasion of the release of this highly anticipated popular comedy, DashFUN met Jean-Paul Rouve, alias Jeff Tuche, and filmmaker Olivier Baroux. In the video above, the two artists evoke the decision to center the plot on Christmas, the unifying role of fries in society or the performance of Isabelle Nanty, playing two characters: Cathy Tuche and her twin sister, Maguy.
They also do not hesitate to respond to criticism around popular comedy and the contempt it can arouse. “There will always be people to say that Les Tuche are films of beaufs, it is important not to be interested in them”, advocates Olivier Baroux.“Criticizing Les Tuche is like criticizing people I know”, adds Jean-Paul Rouve. It is for this reason that defending them is very important to him.
Will this 4th opus generate as much enthusiasm as the previous ones? As a reminder, the first episode attracted 1.5 million viewers. The second had exploded the counters with 4.6 million spectators. The 3rd installment, released in 2018, confirmed the public’s enthusiasm for these earthy characters, bringing together 5.6 million fans. Will Les Tuche 4 beat this score? Answer in a few weeks.
