Art & Culture 6x52'

Masters of Comedy

From their first steps in into the world of cinema to their latest films, through their collaborations with the biggest names in cinema, their great successes but also their failures, six icons of French-style comedy - Claude Zidi, Françis Veber, Patrice Leconte and Jean-Marie Poiré - look back on their careers and their relationship to cinema.
Each episode portrays a filmmaker who, by reacting to the archive images and film excerpts shown to him, delivers countless shooting anecdotes and humbly recounts his artistic journey.
  • Françis Veber (The Dinner Game, The Closet…)
  • Claude Zidi (My New Partner, The Wing or the Thigh, Asterix and Obelix vs Caesar…)
  • Patrice Leconte (French Fried Vacation)
  • Jean-Marie Poiré (The Little Wheedlers, Return in Bond, Men Prefer Fat Girls, The Visitors)
  • Etienne Chatiliez (La vie est un long fleuve tranquille, Tanguy, Le Bonheur est dans le Pré...)
  • Pascal Thomas (La Dilettante, Mon petit doigt m'a dit...)

Direction: Sébastien Labadie
