A quality casting

Driven by its powerful theme and its quality staging, Christian Duguay’s feature film attracted more than 1.3 million spectators in French theaters the year of its release.

In addition to its two excellent main performers (the young Dorian Le Clech and Batyste Fleurial), the feature film benefits from an excellent casting on the adult side: Patrick Bruel and Elsa Zylberstein, who play the parents of the two protagonists, as well as Christian Clavier, Bernard Campan or even Kev Adams.

It was also by watching the tests of Dorian Le Clech, the young actor who would play his son, that Patrick Bruel was convinced to participate in the project, as he revealed in the press kit for the film. :

“I was more than amazed… stunned! I had rarely seen an actor of this quality. I felt that something was going to happen with this director and this film. And it was true. throughout this adventure.”
