This Wednesday, the French actor and director Michaël Youn shot scenes from his next comedy called "BDE" at the synagogue in Liège. This new feature film will not be released in cinemas but on the Amazon Prime Video platform in 2023. Dozens of extras were also wanted to play faithful roles.
After several weeks of filming in Val Thorens in France, the team of the film "BDE" directed by Michaël Youn put down its suitcases in the burning city to use as a setting the synagogue of Liège in neo-classical style and dating from the second half of the 19th century. To shoot in this listed building, the production had to reserve the parking spaces on quai Churchill and rue Léon Frédéricq. Produced in particular by Belga Productions, we find in the cast of this supercharged comedy Rayane Bensetti, Vincent Desagnat, Gilbert Melki, Helena Noguerra, Manon Azem, Michèle Laroque as well as Michaël Youn in front of and behind the camera.
The film tells the story of four friends in their forties, who met at the BDE of their business school, the Nantes Institute of Business. 20 years later, they have settled down and lead orderly lives. Except… Once a year, when they meet for the WEB: the Bioman Weekend. Where there, it "transmutes" strong as they like to say. Clearly: it drinks and it sings in a pathetic way. This year, head to "La Folie Douce" in Val Thorens for a crazy weekend. A little ashamed to assume this regressive parenthesis, the "Bioman" lie to their respective entourage. And, it is on the pretext of a real estate sale in the magnificent chalet of Bob's father-in-law, that our friends land in Val Thorens. But on the spot, it's the cold shower: the "Bioman" find themselves in the middle of the Spring Break of the 150 enraged students of their old school! Between fountain of youth and ego contest, our friends will very quickly get caught up in the game of student life and be involved in an evening that will change their lives forever.
In the next few days, filming will continue in Belgium with the cities of Brussels and Lint near Antwerp as locations.
