Oscar-winner Jean Dujardin is dressed to kill in a wickedly warped fable destined for cult status. 

French provocateur Quentin Dupieux, whose breakout hit Rubber, followed a rampaging homicidal tyre named Robert, points a parodic lens at the ‘auteur’ and the often ravine-like divide between artistic vision and reality in his killer style comedy, Deerskin.

Consumed by mid-life crisis, lonely divorcee Georges (Oscar-winner and French mega-star, Jean Dujardin, in an inspired performance) splashes out and spends €8,000 on a vintage fringed deerskin jacket, and digital video camera thrown in to sweeten the deal. Georges, deeply obsessed with his jacket to the extent of filming himself having conversations with it, convinces bartender and aspiring film editor, Denise (played by the exquisite Adèle Haenel, Portrait of a Lady on Fire SWIFF’20) to help him with a mockumentary about a ruthless man who, much like himself, will stop at nothing to eradicate all other jackets from existence.

Shot with a real sense of mischief, Dupieux has crafted a first-person hallucinatory vortex of madness and masculinity that’s compellingly raw and simply a bloody good time.
