Incroyable mais vrai
With his two previous films, Deerskin and Mandibules, the French director Quentin Dupieux already proved that he has a good sense of bizarre humour. After the extraordinary deerskin jacket and the giant fly in the boot, this time it is about a very special cellar, where time works slightly differently than we are used to. Reminiscent of the work of Charlie Kaufman and Spike Jonze, Dupieux's films are funny, original and elusive - unbelievable but true.
Middle-aged insurance agent Alain and his wife Marie are house hunting and are about to go and see a somewhat dilapidated house somewhere in a suburb. The estate agent warns them in advance: what they will find in the basement will change their lives forever. And that is no exaggeration. After the visit, they don't have to think long: they buy the house. With a.o. Alain Chabat and Léa Drucker.
