EXPAT CINEMA: INCROYABLE MAIS VRAI
We continue with our series of Expat Cinema – where we offer the best foreign movies with English subtitles. The latest hilarious offering from French absurdist and cult favorite Quentin Dupieux has taken critics and audiences on a ludicrous ride since its Berlinale premiere.
The less you know going into a Dupieux film, the more rewarding the experience. So here’s the skinny: Alain (Alain Chabat) and Marie (Léa Drucker) have moved to the suburban house of their dreams. But the real estate agent has a warning for them. There’s something in the basement that may well change their lives forever. So begins a rabbit hole of a journey with all the trademark ridiculousness of Dupieux’s previous successes Mandibles, Deerskin and Rubber. Tilting the slippery slope of mid-life crisis to the extreme, this wickedly funny film is for lovers of the deadpan, the absurd and the downright silly.
