From 1960 to 2000, they sometimes hit the jackpot and would have deserved, in their time, to also win to be recognized by the public. Michel Denisot (with Florent Maillet) fills this gap in a documentary telling the story of an authentic family of the seventh art. Claude was married to Anne-Marie, Jean-Pierre's sister. They are at the origin of feature films that have become classics, including La Grande Bouffe, Nous ne vieillirons pas ensemble or Tchao Pantin. Their backgrounds are complementary, but their characters are very different. Jean-Pierre Rassam experienced palace life, arrivals in Rolls on the Croisette before sinking into drugs and disappearing at the age of 44. For his part, Claude Berri invested the money earned in contemporary art.
