Broadcast this evening on TF1, the comedy “Rendez-vous chez les Malawas” left a somewhat bitter memory to Michael Youn, who did not get along well with Christian Clavier on the set.
Broadcast tonight on TF1, James Huth’s comedy Rendez-vous chez les Malawas follows the (mis) adventures of four celebrities, invited to go to the depths of Africa, to meet one of the most isolated tribes of world.
This quirky feature film, parody of the famous television show Meeting in unknown land, gave the opportunity to two actors specializing in comedy to work together for the very first time. Christian Clavier and Michaël Youn, who had never been on the same set before, therefore responded (alongside Ramzy Bedia and Sylvie Testud).
The opportunity for Michaël Youn to share the poster with an actor of whom he was a fan since his childhood. Unfortunately, as he later confided on the set of the Buzz TV show (for Le Figaro), things did not go as well as he expected.
“I had a really difficult shoot with someone I really love, of whom I’m really a fan, who is called Christian Clavier. I have been a fan since my childhood of Les Bronzés, of My best friends, of the Father. Christmas is rubbish, I’m really a fan of Christian. And we didn’t get hooked humanely “, thus entrusted the actor, visibly very disappointed by this meeting.
“I’m not blaming him, I’m just saying we didn’t hang humanly,” he continues. “We were two similar magnets, it repelled each other a little. The shooting was in South Africa, it was 56 ° C, we were all a little lost, we all got a little crazy. And the relationship was extremely tense, extremely rude. It’s a shame because I went to the festival, I went to the party, with him. And I ended up in the bathroom, yelling at me. So this is my most difficult experience of filming . It’s a shame. It really is a missed date. “
A particularly unpleasant memory for the star of Fatal, therefore, contrary to what the poster of the film could actually hope for. Like what, who are alike in terms of comic talent does not always come together.
