Every day, find the program of films and series to see on TV. This Sunday: our favorite Gauls from our English neighbours, the adventures of Godefroy and Jacquouille and a drama about the military dictatorship in Chile.
THE SUNDAY FILM
In 2012, Laurent Tirard embarked on the fourth live adaptation of the cult comic book by Uderzo and Goscinny with Asterix and Obelix: in the service of His Majesty. Faced with Gérard Depardieu, who has become inseparable from the role of Obélix, the director chooses Édouard Baer to play Asterix because, according to him, “it is very close to the idea that foreigners have of the French.”
After having embodied the cult scribe Otis in Asterix and Obelix: Mission Cleopatra, the actor thus succeeds Christian Clavier and Clovis Cornillac in the skin of the main hero. The film also refers to it, during a scene where Asterix asks, during a scene of torture: “But is this a good situation, executioner?”. An obvious nod to the similar sentence pronounced by Panoramix as an introduction to the famous monologue by Édouard Baer, forever a classic of improvisation.
And it is now up to Guillaume Canet, accompanied by his sidekick Gilles Lellouche, to take up the torch by respectively lending their features to Asterix and Obelix in the highly anticipated Middle Kingdom, whose release is scheduled for February 2023.
