Orelsan and Gringe’s first film

“How Far Away” is a parody of the real life of the two rappers, Orelsan and Gringe. The two singers almost embody an adaptation of themselves. So in the thirties and after ten years of no productivity, Orel and Gringe struggled to write their first rap album. The two residents of the Caen region are unable to complete a single song. Pushed against the wall by their producers, the duo have 24 hours to produce a hit.

It is the first time that the two singers perform in dark rooms. Previously, Orelsan had started his career with his first two solo albums and a first disc with Gringe, as a duo and called “Les Casseurs Flowters”. On the occasion of the film’s theatrical release in 2015, the duo released an album based on songs from the feature film and unreleased titles.

A success of esteem

On the press side, the comedy was generally well received. “A very endearing first film about the 400 strokes of two idlers“, greets “20 minutes”. “Quite beautiful to watch (…) By going slow, ‘Comment c’est loin’ becomes a modest, desirable and sincere film“, adds “L’Express”.An art of life that does not take a stab at it, but with enough creativity to make it a film full of invention, accuracy and imagination“, writes “Le Dauphiné Libéré”.

When it hit theaters in 2015, “Comment c’est loin” had drawn 244,633 spectators to the cinema. If it does not exceed a quarter of a million admissions, the film remains a success of esteem, especially for a film released in only 153 cinemas in France, including 30 in the Paris region. Moreover, its small budget of 2.2 million euros allows the comedy to rank among the most profitable French productions of 2015.

So for Orelsan fans there you have it until Monday 31 October to see Orelsan and Gringe’s feature film before it leaves the Amazon Prime Video platform in France. On the other hand, the documentary about the rapper is still available to subscribers on the streaming site. The second season came out in early October.
