I was surprised when I found that one of my favourite restaurants, just round the corner from where I live, “La Bonne Heure”, suddenly had changed name to “Chez Bilou”. I soon realised that it was a temporary change.
It was first the number of trucks that could be found in the neighbour streets which gave me the explanation. The temporary change was due to the making of a movie, which I learnt will be called “On voulait tout casser” (We wanted to smash it all) which will be out in the beginning of 2015.
It’s amazing to see the number of people and the amount of equipment which are needed to shoot a few scenes.
The director’s name is Philippe Guillard. He has rather a background as a rugby player and co-creator of the fashion brand “Eden Park”, has so far only directed one movie, “Le fils à Joe” (Joe’s son), but has co-written scenarios for a number of successful – popular comedy – films (“Camping”, “Camping 2”, “Disco”…)
I saw some of the scenes involving actors like Charles Berling, Vincent Moscato and Benoit Magimel but did not see Kad Merad, who also is part of the cast.
The neighbour street had also got a fake grocery shop, a fake open market…
As said, now everything is back to “normal” and I can again enjoy a nice meal at “La Bonne Heure”.
