“Do you know the 10 stages of drunkenness?”

Bruno (Benoît Poelvoorde)

During a breakfast in Carcassonne, Bruno (Benoît Poelvoorde) wishes to drink a bottle of wine. Mike (Vincent Lacoste) advises him instead to drink a little water for a change. It is then that he presents his hypothesis on the 10 stages of drunkenness.

Each step is illustrated by a moment of “booze” in Bruno’s past. The first five stages take place at the Ruffec fair, then the next five take place at the Escargot hotel. During his explanation, Bruno and his uncle (Gustave Kervern) go through all the stages of a bender between the joyful moment, the fight, the depression, or the shame.

For this scene, Benoît Poelvoorde confided that the team had asked him to “get pissed”. Which he accepted in order to play the most accurate drunk guy, especially when he orders food in his room.
