Before you make a film about the life of Johnny Hallyday and declare his love to the idol of the young, Olivier Marchal shouts her love from the police. "I love the cops and I'm here to say that I love the cops and that this craft, I respect it," said the director 61 years of age, on BFMTV in the fringes of the demonstrations against the security forces planned for Tuesday 9 June.also read : A biopic of Johnny Hallyday coming soon shot by Olivier Marchal
"I just want that the police continue to be proud to be police officers today," said the director, himself a former cop on the mic with Bruce Toussaint. "They are always the scapegoats of the instability and disorder of a society", he lamented, stating that the police has been "abandoned" and "rejected by the public authorities and the hierarchy".
The director has also taken to the dignitaries who have called for a protest against police violence in recent days. "I'm sick of the species of actors of the second zone continue to poop on the cops while they are people who live in neighborhoods privileged people who have trades preferred. And that exacerbates all of this and bring this hate speech which is not acceptable for me," added the creator of the series Braquo, which is intended for the barely diverted Camélia Jordana and Omar Sy.
"I don't feel safe in the face of a cop," said the singer on France 2, while the actor of the Untouchables had called on the French people to demonstrate against police violence from her home american last week.
