The wild bunch, bold cinematic rebels and adventurous films
FRANCE | 77 minutes | 2019
Quentin Dupieux’s latest is a serial-killer film about a jacket that wants to kill all other jackets and its unhinging effect on its owner. What starts out as a banal incident takes a sharp, chilling turn into Crazytown. Dujardin checking out his “killer style” is definitely one of the best movie moments of the year. His performance – coupled with that of Adèle Haenel, equally bonkers – takes an already strange film right around the bend, culminating in a surprising insight about madness. No doubt about it, Dupieux is still one of the most freewheeling filmmakers in France, or anywhere.In collaboration with the Festival du cinéma international en Abitibi-Témiscamingue."... a loopy entertaining WTF lark."

Ce film à la fois inquiétant et hilarant en devient alors, oui, émouvant. » Libération« ... une des plus belles réussites de ce drôle d’Oizo. » Le nouvel observateur
