TFX will feature Etienne Chatiliez’s cult comedy on Sunday.
Sunday night, Aunty Danielle, ofEtienne Chatiliez, will return to TFX. You do not yet know the pitch of this popular comedy which gathered more than 2 million spectators at the cinema in 1990? “Widow, Danielle Billard is a bitter and cantankerous old lady. She lives in her house in Auxerre with Odile, her handyman to whom she shows all the colors.”
Life is a long calm river: praise of the “evil spirit” of Etienne Chaturez
To tell the story of this old lady who enjoys torturing her entourage, the director of Life is a long quiet river, and Tanguy, appealed to Tsilla Chelton (disappeared in 2012), who had previously distinguished herself above all through a very rich theatrical career which had also made her a recognized teacher, who notably took under her wing the young members of the Splendid troupe. Aunty Danielle will ultimately become his most iconic role, to the point where the name of his character has entered everyday language. After its success in theaters, the film won three César nominations for its female cast (completed by Catherine jacob and Isabelle Nanty), even if Tsilla Chelton had to bow that year to Anne Parillaud for Nikita.
