On the bill for the intense “Bac Nord”, François Civil tells the microphone of AlloCiné how he slipped into the skin of a baqueux de Marseille, between the haircut, the accent of the South and the a physical training.
Southern accent, cut to the Nekfeu, intense physical preparation … The actor François Civil gave of himself for his role of cop in the muscular thriller Bac Nord, long postponed due to the health crisis and which, after a passage out of competition at the last Cannes Film Festival, is finally released in French theaters.
The actor, who moved to Marseille a month before filming to soak up the atmosphere of the Marseille city, tells the microphone of AlloCiné how he became Antoine, the mad dog of the trio of police officers. An interview to be discovered in our player above where he also evokes, in the company of the director Cédric Jimenez, one of the most impressive scenes of the film, which sees the police storming a city.
Bac Nord is inspired by the scandal that took place in 2012 within the anti-crime brigade of Marseille, where eighteen of its members had been referred to correctional for drug trafficking and racketeering. The feature film’s cast also includes Gilles Lellouche, Karim Leklou, Adèle Exarchopoulos and Kenza Fortas.
