Here we have a new clip from Quentin Dupieux‘s latest comedy, Deerskin, in which Jean Dujardin plays a guy who becomes obsessed with a deerskin jacket he bought.
The film is out today through Greenwich Entertainment’s virtual cinema program in which local theaters will receive 50% of the proceeds. Tune in to the podcast Monday where we’ll be discussing this title in more detail.
In this black comedy of middle-aged masculinity gone awry, Academy Award winner Jean Dujardin (The Artist) is a recent divorcee who becomes obsessed with a vintage fringed deerskin jacket that begins to exert an uncanny hold on him. Set in a sleepy French alpine village, he falls into the guise of an independent filmmaker and befriends a trusting bartender and aspiring editor (Adèle Haenel, Portrait of a Lady on Fire) who becomes his collaborator on a movie that will document a surprising new goal he sets himself.
