Asterix co-creator and illustrator Albert Uderzo dies at 92

Albert Uderzo, the playful French illustrator behind the comic book hero Asterix the Gaul whose adventures fighting the Roman legions have enthralled readers of all ages around the world, died aged 92.

Albert Uderzo died in his sleep at his home in Neuilly, after a heart attack that was not linked to the coronavirus. He had been extremely tired for the past several weeks,” his son-in-law Bernard de Choisy said.

Uderzo created Asterix in 1959 with fellow Frenchman and writer Rene Goscinny, bringing them to life in the French-Belgian comics magazine Pilote. Two years later, the first stand-alone effort, Astérix the Gaul, was released.

Since then, the series extended into 38 books, most recently Asterix and the Chieftain’s Daughter from last year, that have sold 380 million copies worldwide and been translated into some 110 languages and dialects, including Latin and Ancient Greek.

Nearly 1.6 million copies of The Chieftain’s Daughter were sold last year in France alone, putting it at the top of best-seller lists.

Rene Goscinny and Albert Uderzo collaborated on the comic until the death of Goscinny in 1977. Uderzo then took over the writing and stopped illustrating the series in 2011. But their style and dialogue are faithfully imitated by the new writing team.

Since Uderzo's retirement, the work on Astérix has been handled by writer Jean-Yves Ferri and artist Didier Conrad under a deal that allows Lagardère-owned publisher Hachette to continue producing the series. The most recent book, Astérix and the Chieftain's Daughter, was released in October 2019.

Parc Astérix, a French theme park based on the property, has brought in 50 million visitors since opening outside Paris in 1989.

Prorom release three Asterix movies: Astérix and Obélix: God Save Britannia (2012), Asterix and Obelix: Mansion of the Gods (2014) and Asterix: The Secret of the Magic Potion (2018).

Lassie Come Home – Now in Romanian and Hungarian cinemas!

Lassie, the most famous dog in film history, is back on cinema screens this weekend. The heartwarming story of the inseparable friendship between a boy and his Collie dog is based on the wellknown original novel by Eric Knight. The movie is directed by Hanno Olderdissen.

Twelve-year-old Florian and his beloved collie Lassie are inseparable and best friends. When Florian's father loses his job, the family has to move into a smaller flat - no dogs allowed.

Florian is devastated and has to give Lassie away. Lassie is placed in the hands of Count von Sprengel, who travels to the North Sea with her and his exuberant granddaughter Priscilla (12).

When the count's mean caretaker starts treating Lassie badly, she takes the opportunity to escape and begins an adventurous journey across Germany, always in search of Flo.

But Lassie is not the only one who has set off on a journey. Flo also can't stand it any longer and starts looking for his dog. The two can't be beaten that easy!   

Flo's best friend is his Collie Lassie. When his family is forced to give the dog away, Flo is heartbroken. But Lassie isn’t easily separated from Flo and embarks on an adventurous journey across Germany, a journey back to her beloved friend Flo.

The heartwarming story of this indestructible friendship will resonate not only with pet lovers, but also with those who have not forgotten to be children.

Prorom will release Lassie Come Home in Romanian and Hungarian cinemas starting March 13th.

Interview with Franck Dubosc: “Real happiness is often right within our reach.”

On the occasion of launching the comedy 10 Days Without Mum we publish an interview with actor Franck Dubosc.

Franck Dubosc was born on November 7, 1963 in Le Petit-Quevilly, Seine-Maritime, France.

He is an actor and writer, known for Rolling to You (2018), Camping (2006) and Asterix at the Olympic Games (2008). He has been married to Danièle since June 19, 2009. They have one child.

This week he can be seen in cinemas in Romania and Hungary in the comedy 10 Days Without Mum, distributed by Prorom.

What drew you in when you first read the script of 10 Days Without Mum?
Since this is a remake, I was able to see the original Argentinian film before reading the new script. It's a rare luxury to be able to see a finished product first, and get a sense of the project, then rediscover it anew as a new script for a French audience. This role of present-yet-absent father, who has many scenes with his children, was very appealing to me. Beyond the humor and the comedy, there is a sensibility, a dose of reality that I can relate to as a father in terms of how we see our kids or fail to see them.

Ludovic Bernard says he could only see you in this role. Did you feel like you had to seize this opportunity, and if so, why?
Let's just say that it corresponded perfectly to my wishes to act in films that are funny yet anchored in reality. I had seen The Climb and In Your Hands, two features directed by Ludovic, and I really wanted to work with him.

How would you describe your character, Antoine?
He represents a lot of men. He is selfish and career-driven; both usually go hand in hand. But he has blinders on. He is completely missing what's essential in his life, but in order to realize that his children are essential to his existence, he needs to see them—but he doesn't even look.

How did you shape the character?
I went with the flow. Everything was written, well written. The only difficulty was to go searching within yourself around children who are not your own and give them tenderness and love that appears credible. It's almost more indecent than a love scene with an actress who is not your wife. You keep having to tell yourself that this is just cinema, but the young ones don't really differentiate between fiction and reality.

You’re a father and must often be absent because of your roles in the theatre and on screen. What port of you did you bring to this role?
I have a profession that is extremely engaging, and I've tended to put my career before my children. My field will forget me long before they will; I know that now. To me, this film was a bit like therapy. When women don't work, men tend to tell them that they are free to do whatever they want once the kids have been dropped off at school. They don't realize the workload involved. Since the shoot, I never tell my wife that her days are easy even if she takes care of our two sons. In fact, she has seen 10 Days Without Mum and every time she tells me, "be careful, that's you in the film, that's honestly how you tend to be in real life."

What kind of notes did he give you?
He sometimes helped me simplify certain things in order to stay true to the character. We had many discussions and I trusted him completely. I didn't want him to be a customer of what I can do from a comedy standpoint. But, more and more, I'm forgetting how to be Franck Dubosc when I play in a movie.

Was it frightening to have dialogues with four children?
On the contrary. I have worked with kids a lot and I love it, because they don't cheat. The difficulty lies in being real around them, because you can't fake anything with them. Working with the youngest one was a bit more complicated. I had to win his affections, then be patient. He was the one calling the shots.

What do you think of the actresses you worked with, Aure Atiko and Alice David?
I knew Aure because we had appeared together in Traffic Peddling by Dominique Farrugia twenty years ago. I met Alice David for the first time. They are beautiful women, incredible actresses, and exceptional colleagues—what more is there to say? We collaborated with ease, with no complications. Compared to my character, they are obviously on a moral high ground. In fact, I would say that this is rightfully so, and that women will really relate to this film. And it would be good for men to question their own lives and realize that they are probably far less complicated. The role of men and fathers today is different than in prior generations. And it's for the best.

Would you say that the moral of the film is that women make men better?
I don't know if that's the takeaway of the film, but it's the truth. I would say that the moral is that one should look at what's right in front of them rather than seeking something far off. Real happiness is often right within our reach.
