Benoit Delépine and Gustave Kervern present Le Grand Soir at Un Certain Regard: the story of a man who suddenly finds himself homeless with his punk brother. A social comedy - a recurrent theme in the duo's work.
Back in 2008, the two directors shot Louise-Michel, the story of a factory which delocalised and left several people facing redundancy. Two years later, they returned with Mammuth in which Gérard Depardieu a retired young worker short of the required points for his state pension sets out in search of the employers who did not properly declare his work.
Le Grand Soir follows therefore in the footsteps of social comedies beloved of both directors. Benoit Delépine responded to the Un Certain Regard questionnaire.
