CINEMA – Guest on the show Seven to Eight on TF1 this Sunday, October 10, Dany Boon made a few confessions about his hypochondriac nature in the face of Covid-19, while his new film, which plunges spectators back into the start of the pandemic –8 Rue de l’Humanité-, released Wednesday, October 20 in theaters.

I had to change the battery about every three days, ”recalls the actor (to listen in the video below). “I was taking everyone’s temperature all the time.
