Every day, AlloCiné recommends a film to (re)watch on TV. Tonight: a wonderful popular comedy that is unfairly overlooked.

In June 1940, at the Splendid Hotel in Bordeaux, ministers, journalists, upper class people, demi-mondaines and spies of all stripes gathered. There, a young man will have to choose between a famous actress and a passionate student, between politicians and thugs, between carelessness and adulthood.

This is the pitch for the succulent comedy Bon voyage, which the Arte channel has the rich idea of ​​offering this Wednesday evening. Nominated 11 times for the 2004 César (and winner of three prizes including that of Best Young Actor for Grégori Derangère), Jean-Paul Rappenau’s feature film is a real delight, an oh-so-intelligent popular work which deals through the prism of humor and adventure a dark period of French history.

“Thirty-five years later The good lifemy first film, I return to the period of the war, which is that of my childhood”entrusts Jean-Paul Rappeneau. “What I saw, heard, experienced, the upheavals in the lives of the adults around me, are things that have remained very strongly imprinted on me.”

Romance, humor and love…

The filming of Have a good trip lasted almost twenty weeks and was not short of plans. “There are 1,400 here… and we had to turn them”laughs the director. “In my films, even in a seemingly simple scene, something always happens that complicates everything: rain, smoke, crowds where extras intervene at specific moments.”

In this cheerful Have a good trip in the form of a fresco and with a choice cast (Virginie Ledoyen, Gérard Depardieu, Isabelle Adjani, Yvan Attal…), there is romance, humor, love… In fact, there is a bit of everything, which makes it a truly beautiful cinema film, a tribute to American works of the 30s and 40s that it would be a shame to neglect… What if you were along for the trip?

Tonight on Arte at 8:55 p.m.
