Hope you like Seth Rogen, because we should not see him, or almost, in an American Pickle. We made the introductions.

We didn’t expect really to see this movie to land. If Seth Rogen has made about him during the containment, this is not really for his film work. But he returns with an American Pickle, a comedy that looks particularly tasty and commissioned by HBO, Max, who is apparently seeking to flesh out his catalog a little too small. Careful, the film could pose a problem to those who have an allergy to Seth Rogen.
Seth Rogen meet Seth Rogen
What is it then that this film ? It follows the character of Herschel Greenbaum, a worker immigrated to the United States just after the Second world War. He dreams, of course, know the famous ” American Dream “. But, he falls asleep in a vat of pickles (pickle in VF) and wakes up 100 years later. The discovery with the modern world promises to be of course confusing, and will meet with Ben Greenbaum, his great-grandson, geek. Without surprise, this is Seth Rogen, who here embodies the two roles. If the physical resemblance between the two men is not a fold, side of temperament, on the other hand, it is the meeting of water and fire. What give birth to scenes rather hilarious.
This film, directed by Brandon Trost is the adaptation of a story written by Simon Rich (Sell Out) published in 2013, and the American people will discover it on HBO Max from the 6th August. For Europe and the majority of the planet, it will probably show a little more patience.
It should be noted that Seth Rogen and Brandon Trost are old acquaintances, since they have already worked together on six films (Our worst neighbors, it is the end…). But this is the first film of the artistic director. Has discover.
