Extreme: Deerskin (Le Daim)



Opening Film, Director's Fortnight - 2019 Cannes Film Festival
Georges, played with ferocious commitment and wild abandon by Jean Dujardin (The Artist), is a 40-something man who is not only dealing with a colossal mid-life crisis but also has quite possibly lost his mind.  He feels that the answer to all his problems is to acquire a deerskin jacket which will enable him to reinvent his life and himself. The one catch is that the rest of the world must stop wearing jackets. The seventh feature from Quentin Dupieux (Rubber) is a statement on toxic masculinity fused with the blackest of comedy.
