Overview

Georges (Jean Dujardin) has a dream. His dream? For his beloved deerskin jacket to be the only jacket in the world. That’s right, all other jackets must go. Helping Georges along his deranged, obsessive quest is Denise (Adèle Haenel, Portrait of a Lady on Fire), a trusting bartender and aspiring film editor he hires to piece together the rushes of the film he’s shooting of his macabre jacket-destroying escapades. The latest delightfully madcap vision from French surrealist filmmaker Quentin Dupieux (otherwise known to electronic music fans as Mr. Oizo of “Flat Beat” fame), Deerskin is part horror, part comedy, and 100% deerskin.

Official Selection
— Cannes Directors' Fortnight 2019
“Combines zany yet rigorous logic with an element of the macabre”
— The Sydney Morning Herald
“Hilarious and unhinged”
— Indiewire
“A loopy, entertaining WTF lark”
— Variety
“Strikes the perfect tone between the disturbing and the endearing. Funny, dark, and strangely heartwarming”
— Cinema Scope

Why You Should See This Film

It takes a special kind of actor to pull off a concept this wild and outlandish. Jean Dujardin is that kind of actor. Playing Georges with complete conviction, he manages to skilfully tread the razor-thin line between the believable and the absurd. Adèle Haenel is equally fantastic as his unwitting sidekick, continuing her excellent run of late. Come for the deader-than-deadpan humour, stay for the gloriously lean 77-minute runtime.
