Note that Netflix is officially talking about a “fictional biopic“, which means that the series by Tristan Séguéla and Olivier Demangel will take great distances from reality. “Bernard Tapie; an ordinary man with extraordinary ambition becomes one of France’s most controversial public figures” promises the synopsis, which announces: “From singer to businessman, from minister to prisoner, Bernard Tapie has known it all. Through his successes as well as his failures, the Tapie mini-series retraces his extraordinary life.”
This romantic destiny will be embodied by Laurent Lafittewho promises to be cheeky as ever, faced with the charm of Joséphine Japywho will play Dominique, his great love. Camille Chamoux And Fabrice Luchini will also be in the distribution.
