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." Variety
"... deliciously twisted." The Guardian
« Alors, mine de rien, à sa façon borderline et très peu sentimentale, Quentin Dupieux parvient à filmer rien moins qu’une rencontre. 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
