Omschrijving

The maverick—some might say mad—writer, director, cinematographer, editor, and DJ Quentin Dupieux (remember the killer car tire in ‘Rubber’?) is back with another off-the-wall comedy, this time featuring the great Alain Chabat. He’s one half of a middle-aged couple (Léa Drucker is the other half) who snap up a home on offer in the Parisian suburbs because each trip to the basement knocks three days off of your age. What could possibly go wrong with this fountain-of-youth miracle? If you know Dupieux’s work, you know the answer is pretty much everything…

‘Dishing out another high-concept, low-fi cult comedy that could only emerge from a brain as deranged as his own, Quentin Dupieux’s “Incredible But True” [the English title] is a worthy addition to a canon that keeps getting weirder with each film, taking the director so far into left field that he’s practically built another ballpark by now… “Incredible But True” [is] a clever and sometimes hilarious take on middle-aged Frenchies finding the fountain of youth in ways you’d never dream of, and then paying the price for their desire to remain eternally young, and, well, hung…’—Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter
