Pascal Elbé's comedy-drama La Bonne Étoile, starring Benoît Poelvoorde, Audrey Lamy and Zabou Breitman, has been shooting since June 5, 2024.

Director Pascal Elbé, known for such works as Tête de Turc and Je Compte Sur Vous, returns with La Bonne Étoile, a comedy-drama starring Benoît Poelvoorde, Audrey Lamy and Zabou Breitman. Set in France in 1940, the film explores themes of identity and prejudice in a story that is both touching and hilarious. Pascal Elbé's previous films, such as Tête de Turc, have often blended drama and comedy, and La Bonne Étoile seems to continue this tradition.

La Bonne Étoile plunges us into 1940 France, where Jean Chevalin, played by Benoît Poelvoorde, lives with his family in squalor after deserting from the army. Convinced that some people fare better than others, Chevalin decides to pass himself off as a Jew in order to get help from smugglers and gain access to the free zone. This stratagem gives rise to a series of misunderstandings and revelations that will profoundly change Jean and his family's outlook. The film promises a rich and nuanced exploration of prejudices and stereotypes as it gradually deconstructs the characters' preconceptions.

La Bonne Étoile is aimed at audiences who enjoy historical and social comedy-dramas. Fans of films such as Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain and La Rafle are likely to find particular interest in this work, which blends humor with serious and poignant subjects. The film stands out for its unique approach to the Second World War, using humor to tackle serious themes and provoking both laughter and reflection. The presence of Benoît Poelvoorde, known for his talent in complex, nuanced roles, also promises a captivating performance that could appeal to a wide audience.

Pascal Elbé'sLa Bonne Étoile is an eagerly-awaited film, combining a captivating plot with performances by renowned actors such as Benoît Poelvoorde, Audrey Lamy and Zabou Breitman. Exploring themes of prejudice and identity in the context of 1940s France, the film promises to touch and make its audience think, while offering moments of comedy and tenderness. With filming having begun on June 5, 2024, we can look forward to an upcoming release that is sure to pique the interest of film fans.
