Eleven years after Les beaux gosses by Riad Sattouf, who revealed it to the general public, actor Vincent Lacoste is playing a new film, alongside Emmanuelle Devos and Christophe Lambert: My glory days d 'Antoine de Bary, which hits theaters on Wednesday.

With My Days of Glory , Vincent Lacoste operates almost a homecoming. In the role of Adrien, main character of the film which he describes as "an ex-child star who no longer has any success", we recognize Hervé, hero of the Beautiful kids ill at ease and clumsy. This time, Vincent Lacoste does not embody a nonchalant adolescent but a young adult in search of fame. Adrien was successful "when he was ten years old with a film called Le P'tit Bidule", explains the actor, now 26 years old. And, to rediscover the glory of yesteryear, the most hazardous possibilities are envisaged: Adrien "is trying to revive himself in the world of cinema by passing casting for the biopic of General de Gaulle", sums up Vincent Lacoste.

Identity crisis

With such a character, Vincent Lacoste once again assumes to interpret "a family of somewhat loosers, nonchalant characters". But it's less Adrien than the scenario that seems to have convinced Vincent Lacoste. "It's a film that I feel close to and that I like very much because I feel that it evokes problems that many people can have today: to feel a kind of pressure before entering in working life and choose what they want to do, "says the actor. It is therefore, according to him, "to tell a passage to adulthood by a fall, to tell the evil that one can have to find oneself and to understand who one is".

As in Les Beaux Gosses, all aspects of life are discussed, without taboos. "Adrien has problems in all strata of his life: sexual, he cannot find love, communicate with his parents, he has no job, no money", explains Vincent Lacoste. As if to represent, according to him, "everyone's fears".
