“- It has a nice skin color. From pink to purple. Good texture, a little fibrous. Water marinade. This must be smoked with Applewood. Am I wrong?

– I don’t know, I didn’t do a master’s in ham.”

Just retired, Serge Pilardosse (Gérard Depardieu) is bored. He decides to go to the Super U supermarket in Rouillac, where his wife (Yolande Moreau) works.

During his shopping, we discover Serge’s “je-m en-foutiste” personality who ignores a man who has had a breakdown and forces his way with his cart between two cars in the parking lot. On the other hand, we discover his real love for his former job as a pig butcher during a somewhat heated exchange with the supermarket butcher (Gustave Kervern).

Originally, Yolande Moreau had refused the role. Gérard Depardieu then called her and said: “I’m happy, you’re doing the film with me. ” Not having the courage to tell him otherwise, she accepted the role.


Gérard Depardieu decided not to be paid for the film so that Benoît Delépine and Gustave Kervern could direct it.
