[Mis à jour le 6 février 2022 à 20h45] Incredible, but true, Philippe Lacheau was inspired by reality for his comedy film, Alibi.com. While promoting the film, in 2017, the director and actor revealed that real companies that provide alibis inspired him to write his screenplay, as reported Allocinated: “They really exist, which is crazy when you think about it, explains Philippe Lacheau, who confirms having had the idea for the film in 2009.
We help you to deceive your partner, to lie to those around you: it’s so immoral and politically incorrect. In short, a subject of brilliant comedy. The activity of these companies touches many fields but, to remain in the legality, they cannot intervene in the world of work, deal with minors or provide false prescriptions.”
Alibi.com is a film by the comedian and director of “Babysitting” and its sequel which were box office hits. For this new feature film, Philippe Lacheau finds himself alone, his co-director, Nicolas Benhamou, turning him, another comedy, “A fond” with José Garcia.
