Jean Dujardin and Nathalie Péchalat, parents: the first name of their eldest daughter decided “very quickly”!

This is one of the event films of the new school year, which will be released in theaters on October 5 : November, directed by Cédric Jimenez, tells the story of police officers who investigated after the Paris attacks in November 2015 to find the commando of terrorists responsible.
