THE FILM OF THE DAY

On the strength of their popularity, in particular thanks to their parody program La Télé des Inconnus, the trio formed by Didier Bourdon, Bernard Campan and Pascal Légitimus launched in the cinema in 1995 with Les Trois Frères, a huge success (with 6.8 million admissions ) awarded the César for Best First Work. After a separation during the 2000s, the Inconnus found themselves on stage in 2011 when Légitimus invited his friends there during a performance of his show “Plus si affinités”. Driven by the unconditional love of their audience, they then decided to come together to write a sequel to their first film.

As soon as it was released in 2014, the divorce between the press and the spectators was pronounced. If the latter are there, allowing the film to achieve one of the best starts of the year, the critics judge almost unanimously that The Three Brothers, the return is bad. “Elephant gags”, “lazy remake”, “opportunistic money machine”, “paltry entertainment”; here is an overview of what the French press thought about it…

Annoyed by so many negative reactions, Légitimus announces on social networks that this is their last production under the name Les Inconnus. Since then, water has flowed under the bridges. And Légitimus has confirmed the comedic trio’s return to the big screen for 2022. “Someone offered us a script and we said yes”he confided. “I’m not going to say more, otherwise the media will get carried away”, he added. “It’s the mi-mi, it’s the ra-ra, it’s the miracle!”
