Director: Quentin Dupieux. With: Alain Chabat, Léa Drucker, Benoît Magimel, Anaïs Demoustier. France 2022. 74 mins.
From visionary director Quentin Dupieux, creator of RUBBER, DEERSKIN and MANDIBLES, a quirky comedy fantasy about middle-aged house hunters who find more in a suburban bargain buy than anyone could have dreamed. For what Alain and Marie discover in their new basement could well change their lives forever. An absurdist meditation on the cruelties of ageing? A droll Buñuelian satire on the world of bourgeois property ownership? Or a giddy time travel metaphysical wonder? This is another bizarre Dupieux masterpiece and another amazing addition to his wacky oeuvre.
