Quentin Dupieux

Fumer fait tousser (Smoking Causes Coughing)

80' - 2022 - Comedy - Dialogue: French
Director: Quentin Dupieux With: Anaïs Demoustier, Adèle Exarchopoulos, Alain Chabat, Benoit Poelvoorde
Quentin Dupieux proves once again that you don't need a lot of time, money or a complex story to make a unique, entertaining film. His latest is a parody within a parody starring a kitschy superhero team.
After a devastating battle against a diabolical turtle, a team of five avengers – known as the “Tobacco Force” - is sent on a mandatory retreat to strengthen their decaying group cohesion. Their sojourn goes wonderfully well until Lézardin, Emperor of Evil, decides to annihilate planetEarth.
"Absurdist director Quentin Dupieux is back with another bat sh*t crazy film. It has Dupieux's signature style of subplots, actor cameos, and hilarity that makes for a fun midnight feature that has its origins in comedy and Super Sentai television shows." - Deadline
