The beach Blue Beach? Unrecognizable. Transformed for one night for the shooting of a sequence. And what a sequence: Jean Dujardin, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Nicole Calfan! Over eighty extras and a staff of madness.
All directed by Nicolas Bedos, director of the series Alphonse. A comedy of six episodes of sixty minutes each, which should be online in November on Amazon Prime Video, direct competitor of Netflix.
Who is this Alphonse played by Jean Dujardin? A Parisian gentleman, ready to satisfy the desires of all women. Even the most unmentionable. “”I will become whoever you want”, promises the foppish one with the velvet eye. ”Your childhood sweetheart, your idol, your pet or your tormentor. Whatever your physique or your age, you will be the most beautiful woman in the world…” according to a price to be negotiated.” Not a sad synopsis!
Especially since other actors, and not the least, will expand the poster like Pierre Arditi and Nicole Garcia. This production marks the debut of Nicolas Bedos in the world of series, as a director, who finds his accomplice Dujardin, after the filming of the film, OSS 117: Red alert in black Africareleased in August of last year.
During the night from Monday to Tuesday, this spectacular gathering therefore shot on the Nice beach, completely transformed with dried palms drawing exotic fringes along the wall, small loupiotes… A whole decorative mishmash aimed at recreating a straw hut atmosphere around a dance floor.
Sitting on the armchairs, those of Blue Beach kept for the occasion, Jean Dujardin and Charlotte Gainsbourg. Dujardin gets up, asks a girl to dance, goes to the bar. Filming began around 9 p.m. At 2 o’clock, cut! Final scene for Blue Beachbut with the lasting memory of a Jean Dujardin, as always, very pleasant, very smiling.
