FRANCE , Belgium | 73 minutes | 2018

Quentin Dupieux (Rubber, Réalité, Wrong Cops) is back, and it’s one unhinged laugh after another. Here he reworks Claude Miller’s Garde à vue in a biting, anarchic and decidedly absurdist tribute to the 80s French crime flick, casting Benoît Poelvoorde – who clearly relishes the role – as a policeman conducting an all-night interrogation session. Hilariously inventive, the film has become France’s sleeper hit of the summer. See for yourself why. CANADIAN PREMIERE / DIRECTOR QUENTIN DUPIEUX WILL BE PRESENT

"la nouvelle oeuvre de Quentin Dupieux, qui navigue entre tension, suspense et humour, rappelle à l'ordre le cinéma français." Rolling Stone
"Au Poste" ne s’intéresse pas à nous faire connaître des faits mais à nous inviter à son invention." Culturopoing.com
"La pirouette finale n’y changera rien, on est forcé de se demander si ce non-sens n’est pas finalement beaucoup plus proche de la réalité que bien des documentaires." Le monde
"Benoît Poelvoorde en flic buté, une bande d'acteurs phénoménaux, des gags grinçants : ça passe ou ça casse, mais ça ne laisse jamais indifférent." Marie Claire
