Deerskin is a jet-black comedy of mid-life crisis and masculinity gone awry, from provocative, genre-defying director Quentin Dupieux.
Georges, a recent divorcee, develops an unhealthy obsession with a vintage, fringed deerskin jacket. Blowing his life savings on the dream-coat, Georges sets up shop in a sleepy French town, leaning into his new persona – stylish-jacket-wearing, filmmaker-extraordinaire. Aided by aspiring editor Denise (Adèle Haenel), he sets out to create his masterwork. But as Georges deepening deveotion to the jacket takes hold, it leads him on a deliciously dark spiral into madness.
Gloriously offbeat, and laugh out loud funny, this is an absurd comedy-drama with killer style..
