France 2 broadcasts this Wednesday June 19, 2024 the first two episodes of Against youhis new detective fiction with Virginie Ledoyen, Lannick Gautry… And Messi, the dog known worldwide for his role in the Oscar-winning film Anatomy of a fall !

This Wednesday, June 19, 2024, France 2 offers its viewers the opportunity to discover the first two episodes of the mini-series Against you (our opinion). Striking, this new detective fiction has in its cast Virginie Ledoyen (Esther), Lannick Gautry (Mathias) and a four-legged international star: Messi, the famous dog from the film Anatomy of a fall by Justine Triet! As a reminder, this French film was awarded an Oscar on March 11, 2024. And for the occasion, Messi urinated on Matt Damon’s star in Hollywood!

Against you : “I immediately found it incredible…” confides Christophe Lamotte, the director of the mini-series about the dog Messi

Asked by Tele-LeisureChristophe Lamotte, the director of Against you, spoke about Messi’s presence in this France Télévision mini-series. “We were looking for a dog and Messi was offered to us. It was before the Oscar for Anatomy of a fall ! We saw some test videos and I immediately found it incredible.”he explains to us. “I immediately asked to meet Messi’s owner. She is an adorable young woman! We worked together on what we expected for the role of the dog and very quickly, Messi became our little mascot”, he elaborates with a form of tenderness. “It’s not always easy to shoot with animals. When the dog was playing, we also had to impose a sort of silence on the set. Everything had to be calm. Above all, everyone couldn’t move in all the senses In fact, the dog had to be able to find its way, follow the trajectories that we suggested to it, etc., etc. he concludes.

Against you : “Virginie Ledoyen was very close to Messi” explains Christophe Lamotte, the director of the new police mini-series from France 2

Despite these few additional rules, Messi’s presence was very well received on the set of Against you. “Virginie Ledoyen spent a lot of time with Messi. She was very close to him. The children too. As soon as there is an animal, the children are crazy! It was fun”, explains Christophe Lamotte. Indeed, the 7-year-old dog seems to have brought a breath of fresh air to the filming of this detective mini-series. “He had a real presence on the set. It was crazy. It’s probably due to his incredible gaze. And filming with a dog who has a Palme d’Or and an Oscar, that’s something”concludes the director with humor.
