Asterix and Obelix Mission Cleopatra returns this evening on TF1.
On the occasion of the rebroadcast of Mission Cleopatra, at 9:05 p.m. on TF1, we are reposting an excerpt from the commented film by Marina Foïs, who plays Sucettalanis in Alain Chabat’s comedy. In early 2015, just before the release of Mom or dad in the cinema, the actress had told several interesting anecdotes about her career, like this one.
“A set always looks like its director. With Chabat, there is no hierarchy. It was a monumental shoot with 650 extras, but Alain never lets himself be crushed by the machine or by the gilding. People fantasize a lot. on ‘the Canal spirit’ For me, the peculiarity of those years was ‘horizontality.’ Lescure addressed himself in the same way to Gildas, me, David Bowie or the camera trainee. . These are guys who give you the impression of working with bits of string while they manage millions of employees and budgets. Regarding the controversy launched by Maraval on the production of French films, I am for coherence. And morality and discipline, of course. That everyone, and not just the actors, ‘flush out’ when there is the means, that does not pose a problem to me provided that the priority remains the production of the film. If wages suffocate production, that does not make sense. Reality is even so that the fees adapt to the budgets of the films. And I don’t know an actor who doesn’t give up his money if it comes to making a great movie. “
Alain Chabat talks about Asterix: “Even if it looks like a mess, it’s still a bit precise”
The story of Mission Cleopatra : Cleopatra, the queen of Egypt, decides, to challenge the Roman Emperor Julius Caesar, to build in three months a sumptuous palace in the middle of the desert. If it succeeds, he will have to publicly concede that the Egyptian people are the greatest of all peoples. To do this, Cleopatra calls on Numerobis, an avant-garde architect full of energy. If successful, she will cover gold. If he fails, she will throw him to the crocodiles.
The latter, aware of the challenge, seeks help from his old friend Panoramix. The druid travels to Egypt with Asterix and Obelix. For his part, Amonbofis, the official architect of Cleopatra, jealous that the queen had chosen Numerobis to build the palace, will do everything to make his competitor fail.
Alain Chabat will direct an Asterix animated series for Netflix
