The comedy Santa & Cie, broadcast this Sunday evening on France 2, tells the story of Santa Claus who, as New Year’s Eve approaches, finds himself faced with a terrible blow: the 92,000 elves responsible for making children’s gifts. they all get sick at the same time! He will then go to Earth urgently with his reindeer to look for a cure.
Released in theaters in 2017, Santa & Cie is directed by Alain Chabat, who gives himself the main role of Santa Claus, whose particularity here is to be green. But he is not the only Santa Claus in the film. If you are keen observers, you may have noticed the tasty cameo of a certain Jean-Pierre Bacri, who embodies a fake Santa Claus, red this time.
It was at the start of Santa & Cie that the late Jean-Pierre Bacri made a small but pleasant appearance. Surprised to see a Santa Claus dressed in green, he asks him if he works… for an organic brand! Below, the photo of this funny meeting.
This little cameo in Santa & Cie is not surprising. Bacri and Chabat were indeed close collaborators: the two men had given the reply in Didier and The Taste of Others, Bacri also making an appearance in The City of Fear, where he plays a projectionist, and Asterix and Obelix : Mission Cléopâtre, where he lends his voice to comment on a report… on lobster!
