French laughs, action, suspense and a classic renew the billboard

The French comedy “The Toast” follows the misadventures of Adrien, a 35-year-old man in crisis

Starting today, five premieres renew the La Plata commercial billboard, led by “El brindis”, a French comedy that tells the story of Adrien, a 35-year-old man immersed in the typical doubts of middle age, whom the viewer meets at a time when the one that his girlfriend has asked him for “a break” and the pause is becoming unbearably long, he has a broken heart and his life and his family are exhausting for him.

Adrien (Benjamin Lavernhe) usually has dinner with his parents, his sister and her fiancé, but he feels more and more strange and, in silence, he continues to play his familiar role – he says what he is expected to say – but his subconscious elaborate complex (and ideal) reactions to each comment.

To recount these moments, director Laurent Tirard, director of “Little Nicholas” and “Asterix and Obelix: At Her Majesty’s Service”, “freezes” the real image, but not through technology, but instead asks the actors to stop in their tracks, as Adrien’s imagination takes over. At one of those endless dinners, where Adrien’s head is about to explode, his future brother-in-law unexpectedly asks him to prepare a speech for his wedding toast. He panics, because he is unable to speak in public, and the number of options that occur to him to avoid giving that speech go through the most unthinkable and comical ideas.
