25 years later, Alain Chabat and Gerard Darmon-dancing the carioca at the Cannes film festival 2019

Yesterday evening, Alain Chabat and Gérard Darmon have replayed the famous scene of The Carioca at the Cannes film festival 2019. On the idea of a petition of fans, the two actors have performed their dance after The City of fear, to the delight of the spectators who came to see the film, which celebrated its 25 years. A sequence that caused a lot of reaction from users on social networks.

A carioca always also cult

“Yay, let’s dance the cariocaaaaa” ! No one has forgotten this sequence of mythical City of fear, the film with The Void. To celebrate the 25 years of the comedy, Alain Chabat and Gérard Darmon have again danced the carioca quarter of a century after, at the Cannes film festival 2019. This crazy idea, these are the fans who had been in a petition. This Thursday, may 16, 2019, at the initiative of the mairie of Cannes, the two French stars have therefore realized the dream of the audience by remaking the choreography in full screening of the feature film, the cinema of the beach on the Croisette.

And for those who have not had the chance to attend the projection of The City of fear, know that for his birthday, the movie will come out in a restored copy on 5 June.

A real surprise

For once, The Dummies had really well planned out. Dominique Farrugia had explained on his Twitter : “We will be only three, Gerard is in promotion for a different movie”. The fans thought so as not to see the carioca, all the more that Alain Chabat had confessed to fear of straining the back.

Before the screening, only Alain Chabat, Chantal Lauby (and his dog) and Dominique Farrugia were therefore present. Moved, they reported that they did not expect that nearly 30 years later, their work is still appreciated. Then, the film started before the screen becomes black just a few moments before the cult scene. A false technical failure as the facilitator of Burger Quiz is again mounted on the stage, with trumpet in hand to begin the famous notes of the song. Gérard Darmon was then joined before dancing.

Already, in the afternoon, a carioca giant had been organized by fans of the film. A way of paying tribute to the group of comedians which was launched on Canal+.

On social networks and on Twitter in particular, their new version of the carioca has delighted internet users. All have praised the genius (and the dance), directed by Alain Chabat and Gérard Darmon.
