UPGRADED TV PROGRAM
Television channels are turning their schedules upside down to commemorate the holy beast of cinema, Jean-Paul Belmondo, who died on Monday at the age of 88, by showing some of his most emblematic films in particular.
On Monday evening, TF1 pulled Claude Lelouch’s mini-series “A Perfect Mom”, co-published with Julie Prens after a special issue of the 1988 newscast “The Journey of a Spoiled Child”, to air at 9:05 p.m. .
Jean-Paul Belmondo plays Sam Lion, a corporate director in his late fifties who decides to make people believe he died at sea. This last major role in the movie earned him his only César for a movie.
Viewers will then be able to (re)discover the documentary “Belmondo by Belmondo”, a “road movie” that chronicles the filming locations of his films with the actor accompanied by his son Paul.
France 2, the movie “L’As des As”, and the “Un Jour, un destin” magazine’s “People’s group told AFP ‘I gave birth to a terrible child’.
After Louis Malle’s “The Thief” at 20:55, Philippe de Broca’s “Troubles of a Chinese in China” and a special Monday evening program at Arte with a tribute from “Blow Up” magazine.
W9 will air in the first episode of Georges Lautner’s “Flic ou voyou” evening, in which Jean-Paul Belmondo responds to Michel Galabru and Marie Laforêt. The channel of the M6 group will present after the documentary “Belmondo, route …” directed by Vincent Perrot.
Canal + channel C8 will broadcast “Le Magnifique” from 21:15 after a memorial service on the program “Touche pas à mon poste”.
