This Tuesday, April 5, C8 is broadcasting Mission Pays Basque in prime time. For his first major film role, Florent Peyre had a very complicated start to filming.
For Florent Peyre, Mission Pays Basque is a special film. After a small appearance in Raid Dingue, it is indeed in this feature film by Ludovic Bernard that the comedian got his first main role. “I had just left a huge budget with Raid dingue and there, on Mission Pays Basque, we were in more intimate conditions, in which I indeed had the leading role. was a little complicated for me to manage…”he confided when the film was released. At the start of filming, Florent Peyre experienced a real moment of solitude that he will never be able to forget. If he had “well done” and it was “prepared as a good student”the comedian has lost his means: “When I heard ‘action’, I realized that I was going to be in almost every shot and that the film was actually based on Elodie (Fontan) and me… And there I have a kind of enormous stage fright which has risen”.
“I felt like a pianist playing with one finger. But Ludovic was very considerate, reassuringsaid Florent Peyre, touched by the patience of the director. I realized while talking with the whole team that a first day on set was stressful for everyone anyway.” In this film, he embodies the role of Ramuntotxo Beitialarrangoita, a Basque who is going to meet a young Parisian, who has graduated top of her promotion from a prestigious business school like her spouse. In charge of real estate acquisitions, the character embodied by Elodie Fontan is sent to Bayonne with the mission of persuading an old merchant to sell him his hardware store in order to set up a mini-market there.
Florent Peyre: “It could only please me”
The young Parisian achieves her ends by even acquiring the premises for a pittance. But she does not know that the old man is under curatorship and that his nephew, a certain Ramuntxo, is categorically opposed to the sale. If she doesn’t want to lose her job, Sybille will have to deploy treasures of seduction to convince him. If he accepted this role, it is because Florent Peyre was seduced by his character. “I found in him character traits that I would like to have: this somewhat rustic ability to say things directly to others when things bore him or bother him. He is a fairly virile guy, a real good man and that I liked it, he described. And then Ramuntxo is a nature lover and I who was born in the countryside, who grew up by the sea, who now lives in Paris because it is necessary professionally, I could only like it!
