Synopsis:
With his relationship with his wife in tatters, Georges (Jean Dujardin) retreats to a remote town where he purchases the deerskin jacket of his dreams. Along with the jacket he's just acquired, he also gets hold of an old video camera, igniting a new interest as he moves from couture to auteur. Aided by aspiring editor Denise (Adele Haenel), he sets out to create his masterwork. However, his increasingly close relationship with his deerskin jacket starts to take him down a darker path that he continues to document on camera and which Denise continues to sew together into a film.
Laugh out loud funny and gloriously unexpected, the odyssey on which Georges has embarked leaves him guilty of many things, not least an excess of killer style...

Witty, playful satire - Deerskin review by TE

Spoiler Alert
18/11/2021

This is an unexpected delight, a genuinely funny film that doubles as an ironic take on the whole process of film-making (especially slasher-gore film-making).

Jean Dujardin and the ever-brilliant Adele Haenel are excellent in the two lead roles, and Quentin Dupieux's direction is very sure-footed. He keeps the narrative tight and, at 73 minutes in length, he doesn't overplay the central metaphor of the deerskin jacket.

The humour builds satisfyingly and there are many laugh-out-loud moments. Some telling points about film are made along the way, but the main pleasure is in not taking any of it too seriously.

And don't let Georges see you wearing a jacket...!

Contrived, Pretentious, Arty French Comedy Horror - Deerskin review by PV

Spoiler Alert
23/10/2022

Well I am baffled this film gets such high ratings.

For a start, it is all based on a nonsense - WHY is this man obsessed with his deerkin jacket? Never explained. AND THEN the entire film rests on an unlikely coincidence of the main character (an old-looking 44) getting a free camcorder from an old bloke he buys a deerskin jacket off. It is so random it;s like the middle aisle at Lidl! Next time I buy a pair of socks I'll expect a free unicycle then. WHAT NONSENSE!

Life does not have to make sense but films do. Such random coincidences are common in fantasy films of course - why i hate them too.

The first hour is very Gallic shrugging mooching about, with more unlikely random events (a mute boy and an unfortunate hotel receptionist...). The last third is gruesome 'grand guignol' comedy horror WHICH is great fun - though not anticipated anywhere in the first hour.

AND apparently this part of EU France has no police at all - which is amazing and may well explain why some many illegal migrants are always trying to leave lawless France from Calais, coz what with no law and order or police, they must have a hell of a time there...

IF this film had been made in English, I suspect its fans would trash it. Absurd and not funny either.

Anyway, nice mountain scenery in the Pyrenees

Quelle drag - Deerskin review by Alphaville

Spoiler Alert
17/06/2023

Absurdist drama about a man who loves his deerskin jacket and goes to increasing lengths to stop anyone else wearing any jacket. One drab scene follows another as he wanders around in his jacket and talks to it in his hotel room. Unfortunately it’s not funny and it goes nowhere. It’s probably the longest 73-minute film you’ll ever see. Even as a ten-minute short it might be pushing it.
