Watching Choulou & Loulou for my 40th birthday instead of being the former and living with the latter (dvd)
As i need a decade or more to discover the hits, it's now in 2014 that i watch this show from 2000. In fact, with now 25 channels free in France, we have more repeats than before and thus I stumbled on this show on Saturday afternoon when I tried to do other things than writing or reading.
If i find the credits very boring with the pause and go frames, this show ranks however among the most innovative ever. The fast format (7 minutes), the subjective camera (still and centered about our couple and every one else in the background), the infinite thematic (at home, with friends, on the job, doing sports, ) are just great choices.
But to become a classic, the show needed the perfect cast and the pick was awesome ! Dujardin has comedy in his blood and he surely adds a lot of flesh to an ordinary character. Alexandra plays on another level but the simple, dreamy, romantic and sexy girl she gives soul is the dream girl every guy would like to meet.
In addition, the show is known to have a particular behind-the-scenes which is maybe the magic ingredient that makes it a cult: those 2 started it as 2 families and ended like 1. In other words, each one was already married before but got divorced during production to marry each other. So the chemistry that exists on screen parallels their personal relationship. It's could be revealing to notice they finally divorce and that Chouchou & Loulou were also very vocal.
At the end, what's left is that's a real funny show with characters who help you getting back when you feel blue !
