Not all of them. “Pay between 37 to 72 euros for that!” deplores a thirty-something woman disappointed. Dupond-Moretti will not fail to go to congratulate the actors in the scenes. The one who defends the brother of Mohammed Merah, is himself a product at the same Theatre de La Madeleine in Eric Dupond-Moretti at the bar a text co-authored with Hadrian Raccah under the direction of Philippe Lellouche.
