Mandibles (Mandibules)

Ahead of its world premiere out of competition at Venice Film Festival on Saturday, September 5, the first trailer debuted for Quentin Dupieux’s (Deerskin) comedy Mandibles (Mandibules).

Grégoire Ludig and David Marsais co-star as simple-minded friends Jean-Gab and Manu who find a giant fly trapped in the boot of a car, and decide to train it in the hope of making a ton of cash. Mandibles also stars Adèle Exarchopoulos, India Hair, Roméo Elvis, along with Coralie Russier

Quentin Dupieux commented, “As I finished editing Deerskin, I realized that all my films are comedies profoundly tormented by death. My work will always be permeated by the same obsessions, the same written “signature”, the same sense of humor. From the beginning, I felt I was ploughing a furrow that was entirely my own: deformed realities, infinitely twisted human relationships, surrealist portraits of our society, profound and childish fantasies… With Mandibles, which fits the furrow perfectly, I’m finally abandoning death to focus on life. Mandibles is above all a genuine and sincere comedy about friendship. It’s also, thanks to the presence of a giant fly at the heart of the story, a fantastic film.”
