A film by Quentin Dupieux
Cast: Jean Dujardin, Adèle Haenel, Albert Delpy
English title : Deerskin
Georges, 44, and his jacket, 100% suede, have a project.
After Au poste Dupieux sets himself in a different kind of film where some of you will love it or hate due to the fact it is a little weird. Here is a character who is in a a self-destructive neurosis. It’s up to Jean Dujardin, who had not yet had the opportunity to work with the director, who has the privilege of incarnating this man who gradually loses his reason, in favor of an unconditional love for his suede coat. Surprisedly Dujardin delivers the role of a sociopath which we know only his name. The coat seems to get him unconditional love that is was not able to get from his wife. Adèle Haenel also delivers a solid performance, appearing like a guardian angel, to Georges until the scenario raises a doubt: who manipulates who?
There are touches of black and offbeat humour , with some unusual music score and yet Dupieux surprises us in telling the story from beginning to the end . Love or hate there is not between with this film.
