Playing the role of Milann, a thirty-year-old man doing community service in a retirement home, Kev Adams takes on the role of the big-hearted thug this time.



In cinemas tomorrow, Thomas Gilou's new film is based on an original idea by Kev Adams and Romain Levy, who wrote the screenplay with Catherine Diament.

Kev Adams had already surprised us, notably in "Amis public" (directed by Edouard Pluvieux) when, with humor but seriously, he tackled the complex subject of illness. This time, the message is addressed to our seniors living in retirement homes. Again, a sensitive subject turned into a comedy.

"With comedy, you can convey very nice messages and a nice moral. I hope this is the case with this film", explained Kev Adams during the preview in Nîmes.

The film is suitable for both young and old, with an intergenerational cast, including Gérard Depardieu, Daniel Prévost, Jean-Luc Bideau and Mylène Demongeot. 
"Even if we have to be careful with the Covid, we have to renew links between generations, and the film is there for that. I think that grandparents must find their grandchildren and vice versa because it is the key to a well-balanced society."

After difficult times for all, this film is a benevolent lesson towards our elders and will delight young and old alike from February 16 in France (UGC Distribution) and Belgium (Paradiso Distribution).

Synopsis : 

Past his thirties, Milann has to do 300 hours of community service in a retirement home or face jail time. The first few weeks don't go as well as he thought they would, but he soon makes friends with a group of seven inseparable retirees who try to explain to him, each in their own way, the meaning of life.
An ambitious escape is about to take place...
