The team that entertained us with the comedies Babysitting, Alibi.com, All Gone South and Nicky Larson, is now back in cinemas with a new laugh out loud comedy: Superwho?
Struggling actor Cedric seems doomed to lead the life of a loser. He's broke and his girlfriend has dumped him. Even his own father, sister and best buddies have lost faith in his ability to do anything worthwhile. Then finally, he gets a lead role: the superhero “Badman“. A chance to pull himself out of an endless downward spiral and gain his father's respect. But fate strikes again!
Rushing off the set in full costume, Cedric has a car accident, loses his memory, and wakes up convinced he really is a superhero on mission! Confronted with real-life adventure and danger, his true nature is put to the test.
Does he have what it takes to tackle the forces of evil, defend the weakest among us and beat the bad guys? But you can't just decide to be a hero, let alone a superhero... especially someone like Cedric!
Directed by Philippe Lacheau, Superwho? stars Philippe Lacheau, Julien Arruti, Tarek Boudali, Élodie Fontan, Alice Dufour and Chantal Ladesou.
“In Superwho?, there’s an effect similar to the movie Kick-Ass, in the way Cedric’s character ends up becoming a hero in real life, by fulfilling his dream. I hope comic book fans will laugh as much as we do when they discover this young man who thinks he’s a superhero and see how we’ve brought his misadventures to life.” sais director and actor Philippe Lacheau.
Superwho? premieres in Romanian cinemas on February 25, distributed by Prorom and Ro Image.
