2019 • dir Quentin Dupieux w/Jean Dujardin, Adèle Haenel • 77 min

Quentin Dupieux’s DEERSKIN is a surreal dive into mid-life crisis starring Jean Dujardin (The Artist) as Georges, a man with an unnatural attachment to a vintage deerskin jacket. As he descends further into obsession, Georges begins to impersonate an independent filmmaker and brings an aspiring film editor/bartender (Haenel) into his increasingly deranged orbit. To say much more would dilute the sheer absurd delight of the way this dark comedy unfolds but suffice to say, it’s pretty much what you would expect from a director whose breakthrough film was about a sentient, telekinetic rubber tire.

Co-starring Adèle Haenel (Portrait of a Lady on Fire), DEERSKIN marries Dupieux’s comedic absurdity with two remarkable performances. Dupieux operates in the same cinematic space as the celebrated Yorgos Lanthimos and this film should be a must watch for fans of his films – particularly The Lobster.
