Ten days after its cinema release, the actors of the film were invited to walk the red carpet of the 77th edition of the Cannes Film Festival. Artus regrets, however, that no luxury brand has agreed to lend outfits to its actors, most of whom have disabilities.

“It’s always more elegant for a brand to dress Brad Pitt”, says Artus, guest on the France Inter show on Saturday May 11. While he announced that the actors with mental disabilities in his successful film A little something extra will take the steps of the Cannes Film Festival on May 22, the director and actor regretted that no luxury brand lent them outfits.

“On the 22nd, we go up the steps”, declared the 36-year-old director and actor, three days before the opening Tuesday of the most prestigious film festival in the world. While the film released on May 1 exceeded 1.6 million admissions on Friday, its fifteen main actors will meet on the steps of the Palais des Festivals, according to Artus.

“There are eleven actors with disabilities and four classics, four boring ones we will say”, he laughed, specifying that the latter were himself, Clovis Cornillac, Alice Belaïdi and Céline Groussard. According to him, and contrary to custom, no luxury brand lent evening wear to the team for this climb of the steps.

“I do not understand why. They tell us stories about quotas, saying “We have already lent all our costumes””, did he declare. He assured that he did not believe this explanation before adding: “It doesn’t matter, it’s our film costume designers who will make them very beautiful costumes (…) and it will be very good”he said.

Climb the steps with the film crew, “It’s been close to my heart for a long time”while“there are influencers who have edited them ten times”also admitted the director. “Now that the film has this success, I find it even more legitimate”he added, saying to himself “thrilled” that its actors with disabilities “arrive somewhat in the limelight at Cannes”.

Furthermore, Artus, originally from Montpellier, will be one of the bearers of the Olympic flame on Monday in this city, alongside one of his actors, Sofian, he said. Comedy that aims to laugh with disabled people and not at their expense, A little something extra is already one of the successes of the year.

Father and son on screen, Clovis Cornillac and Artus play two little thugs who hide in the middle of a summer camp for young people with mental disabilities, in order to escape the police. Artus poses as a boarder and Clovis Cornillac as his educator.

Asked about the reasons for the success, Artus felt that “in these somewhat anxiety-inducing times, it’s a film that feels good”and which allows you to discover “a population that we don’t often see, people with mental disabilities”.
