“The experience of shooting in Greece was truly unforgettable! We were lucky to work in a place of such history and amazing nature… We look forward to sharing the images of this beautiful country with the French spectators,” director François Uzan said.

“On sourit pour la photo” is a co-production of Radar Films, Unagi Productions and Blonde Productions, starring Jacques Gamblin, Pascale Arbillot, Pablo Pauly, Agnès Hurstel and youtuber Ludovik. The movie focuses on a man who tries to save his marriage by taking a family trip to Greece to “relive” a 1998 holiday taken in the country.

It will premiere at cinema theaters in 2021.
