“Let the party begin”

The director (Bernard Geoffroy)

Serge Pilardosse (Gérard Depardieu) is an exemplary employee. For ten years, he has worked with pigs in a company that promotes the values of sharing. His colleagues decided to organize a farewell party hosted by the director of the company (Bernard Geoffroy).

Bernard Geoffroy plays his own role since he is the director of the company Sodiporc in Angoulême. During the shooting, Gérard Depardieu fell in love with the products. During a “drunken snack”, his son Emmanuel, Jean-Christian Brégerie and Gérard Depardieu imagined new charcuterie. They proposed to make a big blood sausage in reference to the film. Delépine and Kervern loved the idea, so they signed an exclusive license with Sodiporc and exempted them from royalties. The “Mammuth” blood sausage was thus born, as well as a friendship between the actor and the manager of this Angoulême company.

2 500 000

The budget of the film Mammuth amounts to 2 500 000 €.
