Quentin Dupieux makes films about psychopathic car tires, gets meta about meta-moments, and likes to challenge his audiences. At the same time, the man also known as Mr. Oizo is a master of turning strange ideas into unique and absurd films.
In Le daim, Jean Dujardin (The Artist) plays Georges, a man who has lost everything and invests the little money he has left in a deerskin coat. He talks to it and would kill for it.
Dupieux avoids surrealism this time and focuses on the reality of the man who slides deeper and deeper into madness. You never know whether to laugh or be shocked. That is the point. He’s an odd duck, that Dupieux, but somebody has to be.
